Record-shattering 4,591 coronavirus cases, 218 COVID-19 hospitals


Madison, Wis. (WBAY) – Coronovirus crisis worsens in Wisconsin. According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), 4,591 new cases were reported in the past 24-hour period. Of the 13,661 tests received, 33.61% – 1 out of 3 – are returning positive – shattering the positivity record on any given day with over 10,000 trials. In fact, the only positivity rate we could find was higher on March 14, when the state conducted a total of 8 tests and all of them were positive. The state’s positivity rate in reporting is a 7-day average of 21.7%.

The death toll rose from 33 to 1,633. This is an embarrassment to the one-day record of 34 deaths set exactly a week ago. Shavano County’s death included six deaths. Five were added to Marathon County. There were also deaths in Brown, Calumet, Chippeva, Eau Claire (2), Grant (2), Kevuni, Langlade, Marinette, Milwaukee, Oxonto, Outagamy (2), Racine, Rock, Washington, Wupka (3) and Winebago. 2).

The death toll slipped again. This is 0.91% of all coronovirus cases despite consecutive double-digit deaths in the sixth state COVID-19 report (we do not have death figures for Saturday or Sunday because the state’s reporting system was down for upgrades over the weekend.

The record of 165 patients was broken a day before DHS admitted 218 more people to COVID-19 treatment in the last 24 hours. We now have about 130 hospitalizations a day for COVID-19. The state says that more than 1 in 20 people who tested positive were hospitalized for treatment of COVID-19, a disease caused by cornivirus. The percentage of hospitalization is 5.3% from Monday, slightly less than 5.3% on Tuesday.

The percentage of active cases increased again and is now around 21% of all cases (21.9%) that were diagnosed in the last 30 days and not clinically cleaned. There are 37,358 people in the state who are considered to be an active case. There are 139,455 people who are considered.

A boom in the summer was attributed to more people in their 20s and 30s being together and spreading the disease. These are less likely to feel the severe effects of coronovirus in the age group and are more likely to be asymptomatic carriers than older adults. And now we are seeing more viruses in older adults.

On Monday, the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) reported a record 1,172 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized, including a record 302 in intensive care. We hope to get the numbers updated later on Tuesday afternoon, which will create new records, until the hospital has significant numbers to be admitted.

As of Monday the WHA has reported 15.7% of ICU beds and 18% of all hospital beds in the state are open, but Preva CEO / President Dr. Ashok Rai warned on Action 2 News last week that there is not an open bed if the hospital does not have staff to support the patient, then a related bed should be available (see related story).

Action 2 will continue to emphasize the summary statistics of the news state, counting each person once no matter how many times they have been tested. It is the standard method used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in its federal reporting and is a better indication of the spread of coronavirus in a community. For data that counts all results for those tested multiple times, visit the DHS website. Even by that measure, the positivity rate has been climbing for two weeks and the 7-day average is at an all-time high of 12%.

New cases occurred in 71 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. The exception was Rusk County, where case numbers were revised below.

* Viewers have asked us why some counties in the state have different numbers than the health department websites. DHS reports cases from 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 the afternoon report.

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 a person’s risk of dying from COVID-19, but will live longer 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 numbers on Sunday.

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. Nobody has natural immunity 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 at home as much as possible
  • Cancel events and avoid groups, celebrations, play dates and non-potential appointments
  • Stay home when you are ill, except for medical care
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask. At the very least, use a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.

Health experts say a face mask is still the most effective way the general public can slow the spread of coronovirus, but only if the mask is worn appropriately – over the nose and chin. County and state health officials are reminding and urging people to stay home when they are ill, avoid large gatherings and move six feet from those in their home.

To help people understand how their decisions affect their own health and that of others, the Department of Health Services has one at https://www.dhs.wiscinson.gov/covid-19/decision.htm Is the decision tool. The tool explains how choices matter and provides suggestions to make activities safer.
