Craig Bell was skeptical COVID-19 would affect his small town in southwest Wisconsin. Now he's sharing a story of survival. Bell became Crawford County’s first case of the virus in late March. According to doctors, he was nearly its first COVID-19 fatality. He says people now ask him, "How bad really is it? Is it like the flu?” Bell says, “Not even close to the flu. This thing is mean."
