Wisconsin DHS launches webpage for monkeypox data

Monkeybox

MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Health Services launched a new webpage Wednesday designed to help track data on monkeypox cases in the state.

The page shows how many cases have been confirmed in each county, gives information on how DHS is combatting the virus and provides a link to check vaccine eligibility and schedule an appointment.

“This data provides key insights that will help empower Wisconsinites to stay healthy, safe, and informed,” Secretary-designee Karen Timberlake said. “As the monkeypox outbreak continues to evolve, DHS is committed to providing accurate and relevant data to the public.”

Visitors to the page can also find a summary report detailing case demographics, hospitalizations, vaccine allocation and administration steps through September 20.

As of Wednesday, there were 75 confirmed monkeypox cases in the state, including 15 in Dane County and one in Columbia County.
