Less than 1,000 people test positive for coronavirus for the third time in this month


MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – For the second straight day and for the third time in this month, state health officials say fewer than 1,000 new coronovirus cases have been confirmed within 24 hours. In comparison, the state registered fewer than 1,000 new cases once during the entire months of both December and January in a 24-hour period. (26th and 25th respectively)

According to the Department of Health Services (DHS), 671 people received positive test results for the virus on Sunday. The new results were part of a total of 4,527 test results. The other 3,856 test results were negative. Out of the state’s 72 counties, 59 reported an increase in cases.

The state reported 934 positive test results on Saturday and 750 positive test results in the first February. In the first week of February, state health officials say a total of 7,411 people tested positive for the virus.

Sunday’s positive test results were 14.82% of the total exam results. This is the lowest figure since 26 December.

The number of new cases recorded on Sunday is much lower than the average of 1,059 per day compared to the previous week, and the positivity rate is also below the 7-day average, which is 21.89% from our calculations.

If you calculate the results of each test – including those tested multiple times – the state says that based on the initial number, the average positivity remained steady at 4.4% Saturday. For the first two days it was at 4.7%.

Four days after determining the number of vaccines, state health officials report that 5,973 people have completed the COVID-19 vaccination, bringing the statewide total for those who finished the vaccine series to 164,026 Have done

So far, a total of 761,212 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been given, which is 20,686 more than Saturday. These numbers are preliminary because reports from commentators keep coming.

On Friday, state health officials reported the first confirmed case of coronavirus in Wisconsin. Since then, a total of 549,826 people tested positive for the virus, and another 2,534,922 tested negative.

Of those positive cases, 529,120 people, or 96.3%, are considered recovered, while the other 14,493 people, or 2.6%, are considered active cases.

According to DHS, two people died within the last 24 hours due to COVID-19 complications, leading to the state’s death of 6,054. DHS officials say both deaths occurred in Winnabago County.

The state crossed the 6,000 cumulative death figure on Friday. The death rate in Wisconsin continues for the fourth straight day at 1.1%.

Wisconsin has 23 deaths per day from the virus in the past week. This figure has been stable for three days and was at 23 last Wednesday. 23 is the lowest 7-day death average since the end of October.

Keep in mind that statewide coronovirus numbers are typically lower on Sundays and Mondays.

Event

According to DHS, 61 people were hospitalized for severe COVID-19 symptoms in the last 24-hour period. The state has 84 hospitalizations per day for the disease. In the last 12 months, 24,885 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized for treatment, or 4.5% of all known cases.

The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) reported Sunday that for the second consecutive day, there were 570 COVID-19 patients in hospitals across the state. Of those patients, 144 are in intensive care, which is seven fewer patients than Saturday. Daily changes in hospitals take into account new admissions, leave and deaths.

In the area of ​​Fox Valley hospitals, 41 COVID-19 patients were being cared for on Sunday, eight more than on Saturday. Eight of those patients were in the ICU, two more than on Saturday.

Hospitals in the Northeast region were treating 50 COVID-19 patients, which was more than Saturday. 14 patients are in ICU – the figure is stable since Friday.

Hospital studies

In terms of hospital readiness, WHA opened 285 ICU beds (19.44%) and 2,500 (22.37%) all medical beds (ICU, Intermediate Care, Medical Surgical and Negative Flow Isolation) in 134 hospitals in the state.

13 hospitals in Fox Valley reported 6 open ICU beds (5.76%) among them. For the hospitals in which they provide services, the hospitals had a total of 105 unmedicated beds (12.30%).

In 10 hospitals in the Northeast region, 46 ICU beds (22.22%) and 303 (31.69%) of all medical beds are open to patients in seven counties.

These beds are for all patients, not just COVID-19. We use the terms “open” or “unpublished” instead of “available”, because whether a bed can be filled depends on hospitals for a patient in that bed, including doctors, nurses, and food services.

There were no hospital overflow patients at the state’s alternative care facility near the State Fairgrounds on Saturday.

In addition, DHS states that the Bamalanivimab Infusion Clinic was open on Friday. The clinic opened on December 22, and the clinic’s referrals were from southeastern Wisconsin health systems. According to the state, the same health care systems now have the capacity to care for those patients.

* Cases and deaths are from daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from the number of local health departments. DHS reports cases of all health departments within the boundaries of a county, including tribal, municipal, and county health departments; The county may not have websites. In addition, public health departments update their data at various times, while DHS collects the numbers received at the same time each day to compile afternoon reports.

DHS blamed COVID-19 or COVID-19 for his death. Most people severely affected by coronavirus have underlying diseases or conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or obesity, which increase the risk of a person dying from COVID-19. They lived longer if not for their infection. The state may modify the number of cases and deaths upon further review, such as the victim’s residence, duplicated records, or improvements to laboratory results. Details can be found on the DHS website and frequently asked questions.

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

COVID-19 tracing app

Wisconsin’s COVID-19 tracing app, “Wisconsin Exposure Notification” is available for iOS and Android smartphones. No download is required for iPhones. The Android app is available on Google Play. When two phones (and possibly their owners) with the application are long enough, they will share a random string of numbers anonymously via Bluetooth. If someone tests positive for coronavirus, they will receive a code to type in the app. If your phones “ping” each other in the last 14 days, you will receive a push notification that you are at risk of exposure. The application does not collect personal information or location information, so you will not know from whom or where, but you will be told on which days the exposure may have occurred so that you can quarantine for a reasonable time.

symptoms

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

  • Fever of 100.4 or more
  • cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Frequent jerks with chills
  • Muscle aches
  • head ache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

Prevention

  • Coronavirus is a new or “novel” virus. No one is naturally immune to it.
  • Children and teens are best overcome by the virus. According to the CDC, older people and those with underlying health conditions (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease) are considered to be at higher risk. Caution is also required around people with developing or weakened immune systems.
  • To help prevent the spread of the virus:
  • Be at least six feet away from others
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill or appear
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Cancel events and avoid groups, celebrations, play dates and non-potential appointments
