New figures from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) show that 1,438 Wisconsin residents were tested for COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, the lowest number recorded in the past 10 days.

DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm said Monday that the state has the capacity to process approximately 3,500 tests per day, but testing guidelines restrict who is eligible. Palm said the state was working to expand those guidelines to include more vulnerable populations.

Including Thursday’s data release, Wisconsin has averaged 1,731 tests processed per day in April.

The state’s COVID-19 positive case count has grown to 2,885, an increase of 129 over yesterday’s total. A total of 31,424 Wisconsin residents have tested negative.

Cumulatively, 843 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 have required hospitalization (29 percent). In 20 percent of cases the state does not have data on hospitalization. State or local officials have yet to report data on day-by-day hospital capacity.

Almost two out of every three confirmed cases of COVID-19, 62 percent, are residents of the Milwaukee metropolitan area (Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee and Washington counties). The counties represent four of the top seven counties including cases. Others in the top seven include Dane (307), Kenosha (135) and Racine (84) counties.

The death total reported by the state increased by 12 to 111, including 65 in Milwaukee County. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner‘s public portal shows 69 COVID-19 deaths in the county, including one death still under investigation.
