Wisconsin recorded 1,865 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours according to data released Sunday afternoon by the state Department of Health Services.

Sunday’s results come from 10,815 tests.

The seven and 14-day positive case rates now stand at 20.17 and 19.05 percent. The figure measures the percentage of tests that indicate a new case of COVID-19. The 14-day figure hit a low of 2.69 percent on June 19th.

A total of 16,801 Wisconsin residents have tested positive in the past seven days, while 83,296 tests were processed.

Officials have looked for the positive case rate to trend downward to indicate a slowing spread of disease and sufficient testing. Multiple public health benchmarks call for the positive case figure to be sustained under five percent.

A total of 714 Wisconsin residents are currently hospitalized with a confirmed case of the disease according to the Wisconsin Hospital Association COVID-19 dashboard. The figure is up by 22 from yesterday and up 143 from a week ago. DHS reports that 82 people were newly hospitalized in the past 24 hours, bringing the outbreak total to 7,646.
