Wisconsin’s governor reported the first deaths from the coronavirus in the state.

One patient was a man in his 50s from Fond du Lac County. The other was a man in his 90s from Ozaukee County.

“Our hearts go out to all the loved ones affected by these deaths, and to all those suffering from this virus,” Gov. Tony Evers wrote in a statement Thursday night. “We are committed to fighting the spread of COVID-19 in Wisconsin and I want to recognize the hard work and bravery of our nurses, doctors, state health officials, and all those on the front lines in the effort to save lives. Together we will get through this historic health challenge.”

The number of positive test results for COVID-19 in Wisconsin jumped almost 50% in 24 hours.

In its daily update, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 155 cases in 21 counties. That’s 49 more cases than Wednesday afternoon’s report.
