State reports fewer than 200 new coronavirus cases, no new COVID-19 deaths Sunday – WBAY

MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – For the second time in seven days, state health officials report fewer than 200 new coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Wisconsin. According to the Department of Health Services (DHS), another 147 people tested positive for the virus which causes COVID-19 within the past 24 hours. Those results were from a total of 2,946 people testing for the virus for the first time, a positivity rate of 4.99%.

However, the state uses a different metric looking at all tests — including people tested multiple times — and by that measure the 7-day average for the positivity rate held steady at 2.6% for the third day. That’s below the 3% that health officials want to see to consider the spread of the virus being managed.

With the new case load continuing to be low, the 7-day average is also shrinking, and is down to 325. That figure decreased for the eighth day in a row Sunday.

The DHS says no deaths were attributed to COVID-19 within the past 24 hours, keeping the state’s death toll at 6,989. Wisconsin’s 7-day death average held steady at 4 from Saturday. That figure is aided by the fact that the state didn’t report any deaths attributed to COVID-19 for two out of the past seven days. The death rate has plateaued at 1.15% of all coronavirus cases.

The new cases were reported in 33 out of the state’s 72 counties. County case and death totals are listed later in this article.

The DHS reports 40.9% of all Wisconsin residents are now fully vaccinated. That’s 2,381,053 people out of 2,723,373 who’ve received at least one dose of vaccine (46.8% of the state’s population). The state says 10,268 people completed the vaccine series within the past 24 hours, while another 11,665 people began the vaccine series.

The percentage of people recovered from the coronavirus is now at 97.9% of all cases, or 595,090 out of the 608,432 known cases. Some of these people were asymptomatic but tested positive, while some spent weeks in the hospital and still feel lingering effects, the ones known as “long haulers.” The DHS says another 6,055 people (1.0% of all known cases) are considered active.

Hospitalizations for COVID-19 during the past 24 hours were far below average. The DHS reports 23 people were admitted for COVID-19 since Saturday, compared to an average 60 admissions over the past 7 days. A total of 30,643 people have ever been hospitalized for COVID-19.

According to the DHS, a total of 5,044,653 shots in the arm have been administered.

Vaccination totals by county are in a table later in this article.

The majority of people vaccinated in Wisconsin have received the Pfizer vaccine (2,721,253 doses), while a total of 2,123,635 doses of the Moderna vaccine have been administered. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is nearly at a total of 200,000 doses (199,590). Keep in mind it was approved months after Pfizer and Moderna, only requires one dose, and was briefly removed from use due to concerns about blood clotting.

Vaccinations by age group (and increase since Saturday)

  • 12-15: 14.2% received a dose (+1.1)/0.0% completed (none are currently eligible for a second dose before June 3)
  • 16-17: 30.5% received a dose (+0.3)/22.6% completed (+0.5)
  • 18-24: 36.7% received a dose (+0.2)/29.6% completed (+0.2)
  • 25-34: 42.9% received a dose (+0.2)/36.2% completed (+0.2)
  • 35-44: 51.2% received a dose (+0.2)/44.2% completed (+0.2)
  • 45-54: 53.4% received a dose (+0.2)/46.5% completed (+0.2)
  • 55-64: 64.2% received a dose (+0.1)/57.2% completed (+0.2)
  • 65+: 82.8% received a dose (+0.1)/78.5% completed (+0.1)

  • Female: 49.8% received a dose (+0.2)/44.2% completed (+0.2)
  • Male: 42.7% received a dose (+0.3)/37.1% completed (+0.2)

HOSPITALIZATIONS

The Wisconsin Hospital Association reports there are 242 COVID-19 patients in the state’s hospitals, with 79 of them in intensive care. That’s nine more in intensive care since Saturday, and the same number of patients being cared for overall. While the DHS reports new admissions each day, the WHA’s numbers take hospital discharges and deaths into account.

The Fox Valley region’s 13 hospitals are treating a total of 14 COVID-19 patients, which is one more than Saturday. Meanwhile, three of those patients are in ICU — one more than Saturday’s report.

The Northeast region’s 10 hospitals have 23 COVID-19 patients, one more than Saturday. 12 of those are in ICU, which is also an increase of one patient from Saturday.

The DHS reports cases from all health departments within a county’s boundaries, including tribal, municipal and county health departments; county websites may not. Also, public health departments update their data at various times, whereas the DHS freezes the numbers it receives by the same time every day to compile the afternoon report.
