From the Johns Hopkins live map, updated at 5:52 am:

There were 1,131,713 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the world and 59,884 deaths.

In the U.S. there were 278,458 confirmed cases, twenty-five percent of the world’s total and 32,885 more than this time yesterday. The U.S. accounted for 7,159 deaths from COVID-19, twelve percent of the world’s total and 1,101 more than this time yesterday.

1,867 U.S. deaths – twenty-six percent of the U.S. total – were in New York city.

In Wisconsin there were 2,012 confirmed cases, 264 more than this time yesterday, and 51 deaths, 13 more than this time yesterday.

24 deaths – forty-seven percent of Wisconsin’s total, and 8 more than this time yesterday – were in Milwaukee County, where they had a total of 1,023 confirmed cases, over half of all the confirmed cases in Wisconsin.

In Dane County, there were 252 confirmed cases, 14 more than this time yesterday, and a total of 5 deaths, 2 more than this time yesterday.

The April primary election will be held on the 7th because the GOP-controlled legislature blocked the governor from issuing absentee ballots to every eligible Wisconsin citizen and extend the deadline to return them so voters would be able to vote by mail.

Poll workers in more than 1,000 municipalities, the majority of whom are senior citizens, have refused to expose themselves to potential exposure to the coronavirus, prompting the governor to call out the national guard to administer the election.
