Wisconsin adds 10,000 cases, 100 COVID-19 deaths in 5 days

MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Confirmed coronavirus cases continue to rise in Wisconsin. The 7-day average jumped to 2,193 cases per day, up from 2,075 on Friday. Tests confirmed almost 5,000 new cases since the state’s last update on Friday (4,968), including 1,197 cases in the past 24-hour period. Wisconsin now has nearly 810,000 total coronavirus cases (809,840), adding more than 10,000 cases since last Wednesday.

Wisconsin added 100 more deaths in that same period. The COVID-19 death toll is up to 8,627 after 30 more were reported to the state since Friday. The state only calculates deaths that happened in the last 30 days towards the 7-day average, and it indicates recent deaths were in the single digits over the weekend. However, the 7-day average went up from 13 to 14 deaths per day because of the double-digit death counts last Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Dodge, Green Lake, Outagamie and Winnebago counties each reported 1 more death. Winnebago County topped 24,000 total positive cases since the pandemic began, equal to 14% of its population, or almost 1 in every 7 residents; it’s had a total 244 COVID-19 deaths. In the U.P., Iron and Menominee counties each reported 1 death. County case and death totals for WBAY’s viewing area are listed at the end of the article.

Wisconsin’s health department says an average 8.9% of all coronavirus tests were positive in the last 7 days. That’s up from last Friday, but the DHS says it’s down from 9.1% on Saturday. The last time the positivity rate was over 9% of tests was on October 10.

DHS numbers show 260 people were hospitalized for serious COVID-19 symptoms since Friday. The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA), which reports daily patient numbers after taking discharges and deaths into account, says there were 995 COVID-19 patients in hospitals Monday, 48 more than on Friday, with 273 in intensive care units, an increase of 21.

The 10 hospitals in the Northeast health care region have 132 of those patients, with 34 in ICU; 2 more in ICU and 6 more overall since Friday.

The Fox Valley region’s hospitals were treating 82 patients, with 8 in ICU, which is 1 more patient in ICU and 5 more overall. The 13 hospitals report a total 4 ICU beds and 1 intermediate care bed immediately available among them for all patients, not just COVID-19 care.

VACCINATIONS

The state’s report on vaccinations is delayed Monday. The DHS said there were data errors last Friday that affected reporting of people getting at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine or completing their vaccine series. As we told you Friday, the number of people completing their vaccinations went down 3,337 on Friday compared to the day before.

We’ll update this article when the corrected data are available. This is where the numbers were last Friday for vaccinations by age group and by county:

Michigan Department of Health updates information on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

** Cases and deaths are from state COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. The Wisconsin DHS reports cases from all health departments within a county’s boundaries, including tribal, municipal and county health departments; county websites may not. Also, public health departments update their data at various times, whereas the DHS freezes the numbers it receives by the same time every day to compile the afternoon report.
