I would believe there has been more testing in Wisconsin over the past month than months prior. They are catching more cases that way, sure. Doesn’t mean there isn’t an increase in cases. Again, Wisconsin isn’t as bad off as many other states right now, but to compare it to its neighbor Michigan, they’ve had 23% more cases over the past two weeks than them even though Michigan had 40k+ more cases going into that period.
I try to stay away from a lot of the commentary around this and focus on the reported numbers and look at trends that way.
As far as young people driving the increased cases, that makes a lot of sense when you look at expected behavior. But when I read that a quarter of hospitalizations in Arizona are people 44 and under, that is concerning.
I agree with you, this is extremely frustrating.
Just going to take this chance to link to one of my favorite all time Fangraph pieces. It's on Givens, Britton and O'Day.
