State reaches coronavirus vaccine milestone, more than 1,400 new cases confirmed on Saturday


MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin state health officials reported Saturday that more than 500,000 doses (521,762) of the coronovirus vaccine have been given until Friday. The latest report shows an increase of 44,907 doses given in a day, a number that breaks the one-day record of 44,753 doses given on a Friday.

In addition, out of the 521,762 doses administered so far, the Department of Health Services (DHS) reported 98,754 people received both of their vaccines. This is an increase of 8,086 from Friday’s number. (These numbers are preliminary as commentators report, so they may represent shots given in the last few days)

While the number of vaccines was a milestone on Saturday, the state’s mortality rate from COVID-19 was stable at 1.09%. The state added 33 deaths, which is above the 7-day average of 30 deaths per day. A total of 5,893 people have died in the state from COVID-19. The state first hit a 1.09% mortality rate on Friday, the first time since September 30 that figure had reached that level.

As reported by Action 2 News, when fewer people have been tested for coronovirus for the first time in the state, or tested positive for the first time, each death carries more weight. We want to report less than 50 deaths on 25 out of 30 days so far this month.

The number of new cases below 2,000 is now entering its second week, as the number is below that mark for the eighth straight day. State officials say 1,493 tests were positive for coronovirus out of a total of 6,363 results on Saturday. This is 23.46% of the tests. This figure is down from 25% for the last six days. The 7-day average is 21.85%, and is roughly the same as Friday’s 21.72%, the lowest average in 3 1/2 months.

The remaining 4,870 tests were negative. To date, more than 2.5 million people (2,503,387) in Wisconsin have tested negative for the COVID-19 virus.

Case and death numbers by county are listed later in this article. New deaths were recorded in Baron, Brown, Chippeva, Dane, Dodge, Eau Claire, Green, Jackson, La Crosse, Marinette, Ocanto, Outagami, Racine, Rock, St. Croixie, Trempelio, Washington, Wukesha, Winnebago and Wood counties.

The state also tracks the results of those we have tested more than once. By that measure, DHS says the positivity rate on Friday was a 7-day average of 5.3%. (This calculation is at least a day behind because it is based on initial numbers, which include negative tests during further review.)

The following Friday, a year before the Wisconsin case was diagnosed in Wisconsin. Since then, 2,503,387 people have tested negative. 541,408 people have tested positive: 5,893 (1.09%) of them have died; 515,745 are recovered (95.3%); And 19,581 are currently active cases (3.6%).

admitted to hospital

For the fourth consecutive day, state health officials are reporting fewer than 100 new hospitals for COVID-19. On Saturday, DHS said 89 people had been hospitalized in the last 24-hour period. The 7-day average is 88 admissions per day. This figure has been stable since Thursday. In Wisconsin so far this month, there were fewer than 100 hospitalizations in 19 days. Currently, 24,243 people are hospitalized at some time for COVID-19 treatment, or 4.47% of all known cases.

Saturday numbers from the Wisconsin Hospital Association show that there are currently 657 COVID-19 patients in hospitals. He is 21 less than Friday. Of those, 165 patients are in intensive care, a shortage of 20. Daily changes to the hospital lead to death, discharge, and new admissions.

In the area of ​​Fox Valley Hospitals, 85 COVID-19 patients (down 9 from Friday) are being cared for, a car in the ICU (an increase of 3 from Friday).

Hospitals in the Northeast region are treating 61 COVID-19 patients (less than 12 years from Friday), including 18 in ICU (1 year less than Friday).

For the second consecutive day, there were no hospital overflow patients at the State Fair Park on Saturday to facilitate alternative care. There were no patients for outpatient bamalanivimab infusion therapy due to the lack of two in Friday’s report.

Hospital readiness

In terms of hospital readiness, WHA has reported 275 ICU beds (18.75%) and 2,397 (21.45%) all medical beds (ICU, Intermediate Care, Medical Surgical and Negative Flow Isolation) which are open in 134 hospitals in the state. .

The 13 hospitals in Fox Valley have 10 ICU beds (9.61%) between them and 106 medical beds (12.42%) open for a total of 106 counties.

There were 48 ICU beds (23.18%) for patients in seven counties and 289 of all medical beds (30.23%) in 10 counties in the Northeast region.

These beds are for all patients, not just COVID-19. We use the term “open” instead of “available”, because whether a bed can be filled depends on whether the hospital has enough staff for that patient, including doctors, nurses, and food services.

Vaccination

Action 2 News has put together a guide to vaccination clinics and health agencies distributing the COVID-19 vaccine to people 65 and older. click here For locations and phone numbers and websites for registration.

As of March 1, approximately one-third of the state’s population may be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. DHS broadly accepted a committee’s recommendations for Phase 1B of COVID-19 vaccination and prioritized them in the following order (click here for the full report):

  • Education, child care
  • Medicaid long term care program
  • Essential workers facing the public
  • Non-front line health care workers
  • Congratulations on surviving

If the vaccine supply is deficient, those groups will be prioritized by risk factors that include medical conditions, race, and socioeconomic risks (see list of potential sub-priorities here).

Michigan’s Upper Peninsula **

* Cases and deaths are from daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from the number of local health departments. 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 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 can 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 from where, but you will be told on which days the exposure may occur 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
