” You have to be asking yourself, should I attempt to get more clinics together, what should I do to react to this?” WISN 12 News press reporter Nick Bohr stated.” I value the concern. Im asking myself that every day throughout the day. In talking with the commissioner and the mayors workplace about whats our best method?” Tomaro said.With school resuming in simply a couple of weeks, 82 kids have evaluated positive in Milwaukee County in the past week. That number has more than tripled from two weeks ago.Milwaukee Countys Director of Emergency Medicine Dr. Ben Weston said since kids often dont have symptoms, the actual variety of kids with COVID-19 right now is likely far larger.” Absolutely, its concerning what were seeing in kids,” Weston said. “We are at the time that its vital to get children immunized, so any children 12 years and older who can get immunized should get immunized prior to they return to school to keep them safe and their families safe.” The city of Milwaukee health authorities stated besides education, theyre largely shifting to what they call community canvassing, which is essentially taking the vaccine door to door, answering concerns and making it as basic as possible.

MILWAUKEE– The Wisconsin Department of Health Services states healthcare facilities throughout Wisconsin are seeing a disconcerting pattern: more COVID-19 clients. Continuing Coverage: Coronavirus in Wisconsin
The unexpected boost in both kid and adult cases is a big red flag.The turnout at vaccine websites in Milwaukee such as the one at the South Side Health Center, has slowed to a drip. Its a major concern as cases unexpectedly surge.” Really understand that were not out of this pandemic,” said Dr. Nick Tomaro, Milwaukee Health Department readiness planner. “This is becoming a pandemic of those who are not immunized.” Tomaro stated they can see the wave of brand-new cases coming.
