200 at Children’s Hospital Tested for Coronavirus After Doctor Tests Positive

Two hundred patients and health care workers at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin are being tested for coronavirus after a doctor who worked with children with severely compromised immune systems contracted the disease.

The doctor worked in the hospital without knowing he had the virus for about a week, hospital officials say, and the vast majority being tested are hospital workers — 10 are patients.

The national shortage of tests for the virus means not everyone working at the hospital who have been exposed to the doctor are getting tested.
