Wisconsin DHS launches monkeypox data page

MADISON (WKBT) — The Wisconsin DHS unveiled a new webpage Wednesday with data on the state’s monkeypox cases and vaccine administration.

DHS says the purpose of the new page is to provide awareness and transparency regarding the monkeypox outbreak in Wisconsin.

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

The new webpage contains an in-depth summary report through September 26 that highlights case demographics, hospitalizations, and vaccine allocation and administration efforts. The page also includes monkeypox case counts by geographic location. DHS plans to update the summary report monthly.

Case counts by geographic location will be updated weekly on Wednesdays.
