MADISON — Wisconsin state Sen. Andre Jacque said Friday that he’s still using a walker after a COVID-19 infection left him on a ventilator, but that he feels better every day.

Jacque said his breathing is “almost all the way back” and, in a sign of his improved condition, he plans to lead the state Senate’s human services committee meeting virtually next week. His comments to The Associated Press mark the first time he’s spoken publicly since he was hospitalized in August.
