Milwaukee County passed a milestone number of COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours. According to data released by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, 9,096 county residents have tested positive for the disease.

That doesn’t mean over 9,000 people are actively infected. On a statewide basis, DHS reports that 68 percent of individuals with a confirmed case have recorded, as defined by a documented abatement of symptoms or a diagnosis over 30 days ago. Unfortunately, according to DHS, four percent of county residents with the disease have died.

Wisconsin’s most populous county doesn’t have the greatest per capita outbreak. That distinction belongs to Racine County, Milwaukee’s southern neighbor. Both Milwaukee and Racine counties passed Brown County’s outbreak, on a per-capita basis, in the past week. Confirmed cases in the northeastern Wisconsin county have slowed after a series of employer-related outbreaks sent the case total soaring in late April and into May.

In a case of tomorrow’s headline today, Racine County will likely be the first county in Wisconsin to have one COVID-19 case for every 100 residents. The southeastern Wisconsin county is on pace to pass the benchmark in the next 24 hours. Currently, 999 out of every 100,000 residents have tested positive.

A total of 10,187 tests were processed across the state in the past 24 hours. From that 285 came back positive, increasing the statewide total to 21,593.

The 2.80 percent of tests that were positive is above the seven-day average of 2.76 percent, but below the 14-day average of 3.38 percent. Public health officials are looking for the percentage to trend downward as testing increases, and both factors have held true over the past two weeks.

The number of people actively hospitalized with the disease fell to 328, down three from yesterday. The total is down 29 from seven days ago. A total of 39 people were newly hospitalized in the past 24 hours.

The death toll from the disease has reached 671. DHS reported 10 newly-confirmed deaths on Wednesday.

Racine County has 999 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 992.3). Milwaukee County has 953.3 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 940.4). Brown County, which is anchored by Green Bay, has 925.8 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 923.5).

Kenosha (777), Dodge (467.1), Rock (447.6), Walworth (442.7), Forest (377), Winnebago (268.9), Fond du Lac (241.4), Lafayette (215.1), Waukesha (211.1), Washington (210.4) and Ozaukee (209.6) are the only other counties with more than 200 cases per 100,000 residents.

The statewide average of cases per 100,000 residents rose to 373.7 (up from 368.8).

There are currently 938 ventilators and 401 intensive care unit (ICU) beds available across the state according to the Wisconsin Hospital Association. Since the data became publicly available on April 10th, WHA has reported an average of 938 ventilators and 411 ICU beds as available.
