MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin isn’t gaining or losing any ground against the COVID-19 virus. The Department of Health Services reported 1,330 new confirmed cases on Tuesday. The 7-day average moved, if that’s the word, from 1,416 cases per day to 1,415.

In WBAY’s viewing area, 10 counties saw new cases in single digits, 9 counties had double-digit increases, and Florence County didn’t report any cases.

The positivity rate also barely moved; it slipped from 11.6% to 11.5%. This is the percentage of all COVID-19 tests that were positive for the virus in the last 7 days. It’s been stuck close to 11.6% for almost a week now, give or take a couple hundredths of a point.

One death was reported to the DHS. It happened more than 30 days ago and it wasn’t in Northeast Wisconsin. Wisconsin is averaging 4 deaths from COVID-19 per day. Last week between Monday and Friday, 40 people were added to the death toll. Since Friday, there’s been only 2.

Hospitalizations also showed little change. According to DHS figures, 59 people were admitted to hospitals in the past 24-hour period for COVID-19. Taking discharges and deaths into account, the Wisconsin Hospital Association says there are 388 COVID-19 patients in hospitals, only 3 more than the day before, and 59 of them are in ICU, which is 2 fewer than Monday.

There are 37 people hospitalized for COVID-19 in the Northeast health care region, 7 more than a day earlier; 5 of them are in ICU, the same number as Monday.

Fox Valley hospitals are treating 25 COVID-19 patients, 1 more than Monday, and still has none in ICU.

* You can find cases and deaths for all 72 Wisconsin counties on the DHS County Data website and for Michigan counties on the Michigan Department of Health COVID-19 website. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and Wisconsin Hospital Association publish updates Mondays through Fridays.

** Michigan Department of Health updates county information on Wednesdays.

Cases and deaths are from state COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. The Wisconsin 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.
