2,155 COVID-19 Cases Reported Monday
Active hospitalizations tick upward, but still below level reported last week.
The Department of Health Services reported 2,155 new cases on Monday from 7,906 processed tests.
The seven-day case total stands at 27,097, below November 18th’s record report of 45,946. September, when Wisconsin’s surge started, accounted for 46,671 cases in its entirety. The seven-day testing total stands at 79,574, below November 18th’s record rolling total of 133,019 tests. The testing total is filtered to only include individuals who were tested for the first time or have been tested previously but are receiving their first positive diagnosis.
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 rate figure to be sustained under five percent.
The Wisconsin Hospital Association reported that 1,566 people were actively hospitalized with a confirmed case of the disease, an increase of 64 over the day before and a decrease of 279 from a week ago. Thirty days ago the total was 1,806.
DHS reported 70 people were newly hospitalized in the past 24 hours in its daily data release. A total of 18,216 people have required hospitalization since the outbreak began, 1,191 in the past week.
The 30-day average daily death total now stands at an average of 47.9, below the peak of 50.27 set December 5th. Thirty days ago the rolling average was 29.23.
Since September, Milwaukee County has gone from having the worst per-capita outbreak to the 21st worst in the state, even as its case and hospitalization load has surged to record levels. The county fell as low as 26th in early November.
Menominee County has recorded 13,487 cases per 100,000 residents (no change). Dodge County has recorded 10,174.3 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 10,108.2). Shawano, Brown, Oconto, Kewaunee, Jackson, Fond du Lac, Trempealeau, Forest, Calumet, Sheboygan, Langlade, Winnebago, Barron, Eau Claire, Outagamie, Chippewa, Crawford and Florence counties are the remaining counties leading Milwaukee.
According to DHS data, 7,730.2 out of every 100,000 Milwaukee County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 since the outbreak began (up from 7,683.4).
The statewide average of cases per 100,000 residents rose to 7,167.1 (up from 7,129.8). Wisconsin has recorded a per-capita rate of 1,094.1 cases per 100,000 residents in the past two weeks according to the DHS activity level report released Wednesday. That’s down from the record 1,519.4 reported November 18th.
