The latest numbers show the lowest positivity for coronovirus test results in about a month


MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported the lowest positivity rate on Sunday as another 11119 new coronovirus cases were confirmed in the state.

Out of a total of 6,331 results for those first tested, 17.67% were positive for the virus that causes COVID-19. The figure has not gone below 20% since December 26, when it was 10.72%.

The other 5,212 people who tested the virus for the first time were negative. New cases were reported in all Wisconsin counties except Crawford, Florence, Forest, Iowa, Iron and Langald counties.

Our records show that the 7-day average for new cases continues to fall one day. The figure is currently 1,597 and has dropped daily for almost two straight weeks. This is the lowest figure since the end of September 18, when it stood at 1,576. In mid-November the figure stood at 6,443.

Sunday’s positivity rate is 17.67%, below the 7-day average positivity rate of 23.43%. Our record show was the first time on Saturday when the seven-day positivity rate went below 25% since December 26th.

On Sunday, 6 COVID-19 deaths were added keeping the average 7-day deaths on Sunday at 34. The death rate also remained stable at 1.07%. Prior to Saturday, the rate was stable at 1.06% for three straight days. Deaths were recorded in the Dane (2), Milwaukee, Rock (2) and St. Croix counties.

In addition, the state reported more than one and a half million people (504,238) who were infected with coronovirus are now considered to be fine, accounting for 94.6% of all known cases. To be recovered, 30 days must pass after the onset of symptoms or a positive test, or a person must be medically cleared. DHS acknowledges that some of them may feel lethargic effects from their infections, such as brain fog, headaches, and muscle pain or lethargy. State health officials report that 22,882 cases are currently active, or 4.3% of all cases.

The county case and death numbers in this case are listed later.

DHS tracks the results of people tested multiple times, such as health care workers or patients treated for COVID-19. The 7-day average for positivity rates by that measure fell from 6.5% to 6.1% on Saturday. (The DHS calculation is one day behind because it is based on initial numbers, including negative tests undergoing further review.) Reporting one test per person, no matter how many times they have been tested, spread the virus. Is considered a better indicator. Community; This is how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention compile their reports.

Vacancies

The latest COVID-19 vaccination numbers from Friday show a total of 310,256 “shots in the arm”. 56,680 people have received their second and final dose in the state. These numbers are preliminary for a few days as reports from commentators keep coming. Immunization administration numbers are updated by the state’s health department from Monday to Friday.

DHS now includes vaccination information by age and gender on its website (click here). The Vaccine Data page lets you reduce day-to-day vaccinations by county or Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition (HERC) – use the pulldown menu in the upper right corner of the graph at https://www.dhs.wiscinson.gov/ovovid . -19 / vaccine-data.htm # days.

admitted to hospital

As of Sunday, the state says 67 more people have been hospitalized for COVID-19 in the last 24-hour period. This is the fourth day in a row where hospitalizations are in double digits, and five out of the last 7 days. The state is 88 hospitalized daily compared to the previous week. A total of 23,692 COVID-19 patients have been admitted to the hospital, constituting 4.4% of all known cases.

The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) reported on Saturday that there are 761 COVID-19 patients in state hospitals. He is 10 less than Saturday. The WHA says 169 of these patients are in intensive care, 3 fewer than on Saturday. This marks 11 days in hospitals with fewer than 1,000 COVID-19 patients at one time, and five straight days with fewer than 200 in the ICU.

There are 65 Kovid-19 patients in 13 hospitals in the Fox Valley area, including 8 in ICUs. He is one less in ICU and two fewer than Saturday.

There are 78 COVID-19 patients in hospitals in the Northeast region, including 11 in the ICU. He has 6 fewer patients in the ICU and fewer patients overall the day before.

Hospital readiness

The WHA further revealed that 353 ICU beds (24.07%) and 2,497 all types of medical beds (22.34%) are open in 134 hospitals in the state – which is ICU, intermediate care, medical surgical and negative flow isolation.

The 13 hospitals in Fox Valley had 13 ICU beds (12.5%) and 137 medical beds total (16.06%) are open to the eight counties they serve.

52 ICU beds (25.12%) in 10 hospitals in the Northeast region and 251 (26.25%) of all medical beds were for patients in seven counties.

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.

* 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 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 from where, but you will be told on which days the exposure may occur so that you can quarantine for a reasonable period of 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. 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
