The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 463 new COVID-19 cases Tuesday from 1,496 processed tests.

The seven-day case total stands at 2,742, below November 18th’s record report of 45,946 and its lowest point since June 26th. The seven-day testing total stands at 21,803, 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.

The seven-day positive case rate, the percentage of tests that confirm a new case of the disease and proxy for if the disease’s spread is growing or slowing, stands at 12.58%, below the record high of 38.12% set December 4th. The 14-day average is 11.49%. The 14-day average set a low of 2.69% on June 19th.

Officials have looked for the positive case rate to trend downward to indicate a slowing spread of disease and sufficient testing.

The Wisconsin Hospital Association reported that 244 people were actively hospitalized with a confirmed case of the disease, a decrease of 11 from the day prior and a decrease of 27 from a week ago. Thirty days ago the total was 570.

The state reported 70 people were newly hospitalized in the past 24 hours in its daily data release. A total of 26,554 people have required hospitalization since the outbreak began, 332 in the past week.

DHS reported 29 new deaths. A total of 6,510 Wisconsin residents have died as a result of the virus, including 1,247 in Milwaukee County.

The 30-day average daily death total now stands at 15.20, below the December 23rd reported record of 53.43. Thirty days ago the rolling average was 31.17.

Since September, Milwaukee County has gone from having the worst per-capita outbreak to the 18th worst in the state. The county fell as low as 26th in early November.

Menominee County has recorded 18,142.4 cases per 100,000 residents (unchanged). Dodge County has recorded 12,862.5 cases per 100,000 residents (up from 12,853.5). Jackson, Barron, Kewaunee, Brown, Trempealeau, Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Oconto, Shawano, Juneau, Chippewa, Pepin, Eau Claire, Calumet and Outagamie are the remaining counties leading Milwaukee.

According to DHS data, 10,454.4 out of every 100,000 Milwaukee County residents have tested positive for COVID-19 since the outbreak began (up from 10,453.1).

The statewide average of cases per 100,000 residents rose to 9,813.7 (up from 9,805.7).
