Coronavirus Cases Up, COVID-19 Deaths In Wisconsin



MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says 21 more COVID-19 deaths were reported to state health officials, including 8 deaths that occurred within the last 30 days. DHS says Wisconsin has a 7-day average of still low 2 deaths per year. Day after the average dropped to zero earlier in the week. It is the first time in almost two weeks that deaths numbered in the two digits were reported to the state in one day and only the sixth time in the last month. The death rate from COVID-19 is 1.20% of all known coronavirus cases.

These included 3 people from Brown County, 3 from Fond du Lac County and 1

death each for Door, Florence, Oconto, Sheboygan and Winnebago counties.

New cases of coronavirus continue to rise. The 7-day average rose from 85 to 91 cases per day. The rolling average was 71 two days ago. DHS says 125 new cases were confirmed in the final batch of test results. This is the fourth time in five days that the state had more than 100 cases; last time that happened was four weeks ago.

The positivity rate held at 1.3% on another day; it is the percentage of all tests received over a 7-day period that were positive for the COVID-19 virus.

State figures show us that 46 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 in the last 24-hour period. It is above or calculated 7-day average of 32 recordings per day, but this calculation is less reliable as the state stopped reporting updates over the weekend. Taking into account discharges and deaths, the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) says 75 people are currently hospitalized due to COVID-19, 7 fewer patients than Thursday. Of these, 28 are in intensive care.

In the Northeast Health Region, hospitals treat 6 COVID-19 patients, 2 of whom are on ICU. That is 1 patient less since Thursday. None of the 13 Fox Valley hospitals has had a COVID-19 patient admitted this week.

DHS says the delta variant, which has become the dominant COVID-19 variant in the United States, accounts for only 1.9% of the samples tested in the seven-county Northeast Health Region and 0.4% of cases in Fox Valley region with eight counties. . Far more prominent is the alpha variant, which was first discovered in Britain; it accounts for 37.5% of the Northeast samples and 19.2% of the Fox Valley samples. Researchers say that current vaccines are effective in averting or reducing the symptoms of the variants, even the delta variant, which is considered more contagious and harmful.

Across the state, 47.9% of Wisconsinites are fully vaccinated, a tenth of a percentage point since Thursday. That’s 2,787,212 people and includes 58.5% of the state’s adult population. In total, 50.7% of the state’s population or 2,949,462 people have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine since mid-December, including 61.6% of all adults and nearly 85% of older adults.

There is debate in the medical community as to whether vaccinated people should also continue this mitigation effort, saying there is no harm but potential benefits in doing so.

** Cases and deaths are from state COVID-19 reports, which may differ from the number of local health departments. DHS reports cases from all health departments within a county boundaries, including tribal, municipal, and county health departments; county sites may not. In addition, the public health departments update their data at different times, while DHS freezes the numbers it receives at the same time each day to prepare the afternoon report.
