Two Straight Days With No COVID-19 Deaths
Hospitalizations hit 88-day low, but new cases continue to accelerate.
For the second straight day, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported that no Wisconsin residents died from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours. It’s the third time no new deaths were reported in the past four days, even as the 30-day average stands at 6.3 deaths per day.
Wisconsin has 777 deaths as a result of the disease. Of those 44 percent have resided in a nursing home or assisted living facility. DHS reports that 71 percent have been 70 or older.
The Wisconsin Hospital Association also reported the number of people actively hospitalized with the disease fell to 236, a low not seen since April 3rd. A total of 14 people were newly hospitalized in the past 24 hours.
The positive indicators come as the percentage of tests coming back positive, the positive case rate, continues to increase.
A total of 5,927 tests were processed in the past 24 hours, a figure for which DHS reported a lower total only once in the past 40 days.
