Wisconsin reported a record 1,165 new COVID-19 cases; 6 more people died



MADISON (WKOW) – Wisconsin has hit a new high in new COVID-19 cases confirmed through testing over a 24-hour period.

The Department of Health Services reported 13,162 new test results, of which 1,165 – or 8.9% – showed positive results, according to data released today.

In the rest of the tests, 91.1 percent returned negative results. However, a negative test only means that the person tested was not ill at that time. They can still contract with COVID-19.

According to DHS, measuring the percentage of new cases returned in tests every day helps to distinguish if the increased number of cases is due to greater spread or more testing.

The seven-day average has risen to 847 new cases per day, up from 833 yesterday.

DHS also listed six new deaths, with a total of 996 (1

.7% positive) deaths from the disease.

The state reported 50 new hospitalizations. Wisconsin hospitals currently treat 311 patients with COVID-19. Among them, 96 are in intensive care.

Bang reported 11,997 new negative test results.

Of all the positive cases reported since the pandemic began, 49,283, or 82%, were considered to have recovered.

DHS currently has a county dashboard that assesses COVID-19 activity in the Health Care Emergency Readiness Coalition counties and regions to measure what DHS calls a burden in each county. . See dashboard HERE.

(Our full coronavirus coverage is available here.)

The new coronavirus strain causes COVID-19 disease. Symptoms include cough, fever, and difficulty breathing. A complete list of symptoms is available on the Center for Disease Control website.

In severe cases, pneumonia can develop. People at greatest risk include the elderly, people with heart or lung disease as well as anyone at higher risk of infection.

For most, the virus is mild, manifesting similar to a common cold or the flu.

Anyone who thinks they might have an illness should call the hospital or clinic first before coming to get diagnosed. Doing so gives staff time to take appropriate precautions so that the virus does not spread.

Those who need emergency medical services should continue using 911.
