Wisconsin has nearly 11,000 coronavirus test results: 1 in 3 positive

Madison, Wisconsin (WBAY) – For the first time in four days, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services received more than 10,000 coronavirus test results. The Department of Homeland Security reported 10,938 results on Thursday, with 1 in 3 positive for the 3,643 newly identified cases. This is higher than the 7-day average of 3,192 cases per day for the past week, and the positive rate of 33.3% is also higher than the 7-day average, which was 31.9% in our calculations. Cases have been identified in 71 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties.

The death rate from COVID-19 in Wisconsin rose for the second day in a row to 0.95%, erasing the progress since October 16. The death rate has been rising slowly since November 15, when it reached 0.84%. The Department of Homeland Security reported 59 more deaths, bringing the COVID-19 death toll to 4,255. The seven-day average remained steady at 44 deaths per day, but 5 of the past seven days were above this average.

Fatalities have been reported in Calumet, Clarke, Columbia, or Claire, Grant (2), Jackson (2), Kenosha (3), Lacrosse (4), Marquette, Milwaukee (11), Monroe, Oneida (2), Outagami ( 2), Portage, Racine (5), Sauk, St. Croix, Trempealeau (2), Vilas (2), Walworth (2), Waukesha (3), Waupaca, Winnebago (5) and Wood (3), while the number of deaths in Rock County was revised.

As usual, the County and Death status numbers will be updated later in this article.

To date, a total of 448,441 people have tested positive for the coronavirus and 2,273,936 have tested negative in Wisconsin. On the current average of 7 days, Wisconsin can reach half a million cases on New Year’s Day, less than 10 months after the virus reached our state.

The number of recovered cases surpassed 400,000 (403,706), which is 90% of all known cases – a number and percentage that has been increasing since November. Another 40,378 people are still active cases, which is 9% of the known cases.

The Department of Homeland Security acknowledges that some of these patients who fall into the broad “cure” category may still have lingering effects from infection, such as “brain fog” or loss of the sense of taste or smell.

Hospitals

The Department of Homeland Security reported another 129 COVID-19 patients who had been admitted to hospitals in the past 24 hours. This is in line with an average of 7 days in the hospital of 130 cases per day. This moving average has been in decline for 12 days now – which is a positive development.

From the latest available data, the Wisconsin Hospital Association The World Health Association (WHA) reported that 1,410 people were being treated in hospitals on Wednesday due to the coronavirus, of whom 314 were in intensive care. This is the lowest number of COVID-19 patients in hospital at one time since October 27 and the lowest in the ICU since October 25. Hospital admissions peaked at 2,277 patients on November 17. We will have updated hospital numbers later on Thursday afternoon, and this report will be updated.

in the hospital Change for 24 hours Intensive care unit Change for 24 hours
Statewide 1,410 -51 314 -17
Fox Valley 81 -5 14 -1
the Northeast 113 +6 23 -3

Daily changes in hospitals take into account new admissions, discharges and deaths.

The alternative care facility at the government fairground was treating 5 patients on Wednesday, the same as Tuesday. The field hospital was opened on October 14 to reduce the number of cases in hospitals by admitting COVID-19 patients who wear close-out clothing but still need care.

Get ready for the hospital

As of Wednesday, the World Health Assembly reported that 16% of intensive care beds and 17.4% of all hospital beds in the state’s 134 hospitals are open.

Fox Valley has 16 of the 104 open intensive care beds (15.4%) and 104 generally open beds (12.2%).

The northeastern region has 34 of the 207 open intensive care beds (16.4%) and 183 open beds (19.1%).

These beds are for all patients, not just COVID-19, and whether the bed can be filled depends on whether the hospital has the necessary medical staff and support.

The need for personal protective equipment has not changed significantly: 18 hospitals have fewer than 7 days of gowns, 14 have a shortage of paper medical masks (1 more than Tuesday), 11 have less than a week’s supply of eyeglasses, and 7 have low N95 masks ( Less than 9 on Tuesday).

* Cases and deaths are taken from daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. The Department of Homeland Security reports cases from all health departments within county boundaries, including tribal, municipal, and local health departments; County sites may not. Also, public health departments update their data at various times, while the Department of Homeland Security freezes the numbers it receives at the same time every day for an afternoon report.

The Department of Homeland Security has reported deaths attributed to or to which COVID-19 contributed to their deaths. Most of the people severely affected by the coronavirus have underlying diseases or conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease or obesity, which increase a person’s risk of dying from COVID-19. They would have lived longer had it not been for the infection. The state may review case and death numbers after further review, such as the place of residence of the victim, duplicate records, or correct laboratory results. Details can be found at DHS website And the Frequently asked questions.

** Michigan State does not update the numbers on Sunday. Monday’s numbers include updates since the reporting deadline is Saturday.

Symptoms

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified these symptoms as possible symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Fever of 100.4 or higher
  • cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • shudder
  • Frequent shivering with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of sense of taste or smell

protection

  • Coronavirus is a new or “new” virus. Nobody has a natural immunity to it. Children and teens seem to recover better from the virus. Older adults and those with underlying health conditions (heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease) are at high risk, according to the CDC. Precautions are also needed around people with a weak or developing immune system.
  • To help prevent the virus from spreading:
  • Stay at least six feet from others
  • Avoid close contact with people who appear ill or who appear ill
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Cancel events and avoid unnecessary groups, gatherings, play dates and appointments
  • Stay home when sick, except to get medical care
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds. When soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask. At the very least, use a tissue when coughing or sneezing or use the inside of your elbow.
