COVID-19 Hospitalizations Hit Four-Week Low
Number of people admitted for hospitalization growing, but those actively receiving care drops.
The number of people hospitalized because of COVID-19 in Wisconsin continues to fall, even as the number of cases grows.
The Department of Health Services and Wisconsin Hospital Association reported Saturday that 315 people were hospitalized, the lowest total seen since 298 were actively hospitalized on May 6th. Saturday’s total is down 94 from seven days prior.
But plenty of new people are going to the hospital. A total of 41 were reported in the past 24 hours, above the 30-day average of 37.
A total of 11,792 tests were processed in the past 24 hours, from which 322 came back positive. The statewide total stands at 20,571 over the length of the outbreak. DHS reports that 66 percent have recovered, as defined by a documented abatement of symptoms or a diagnosis over 30 days ago.
The death toll from the disease has reached 645, with 12 deaths newly-recorded in the past 24 hours.
Milwaukee County accounts for 325 of the 645 deaths and 8,688 cases according to state data.
Racine County has 975.4 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 961.1). Brown County, which is anchored by Green Bay, has 913.8 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 911.9). Milwaukee County has 910.5 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 895.7).

The statewide average of cases per 100,000 residents rose to 356.0 (up from 350.4).
