Although the percentage of new coronavirus cases jumped up Sunday, the Department of Health Services reported no new deaths from the virus.

Out of Sunday’s 6,051 new test results, 4.6% were positive and 280 new patients were diagnosed. On Saturday, there were 385 new patients, or 3.8% of the total amount of test results.

That is the highest percentage the state has reported during the past two weeks. During that time frame, 10 days have had percentages below 3%.

The state has now confirmed 24,819 coronavirus patients and 744 COVID-19 deaths since testing began earlier this year.

Meanwhile, 460,334 have tested negative across the state since testing began.

The DHS says there are 242 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized, with 94 patients currently in intensive care.

Since testing began, 3,220 people have been hospitalized for COVID-19, which according to the DHS, is 13% of all positive cases.

A recovered patient is someone who is currently alive after being confirmed to have COVID-19, and had one or more of the following:

-Documentation of resolved symptoms

-Documentation of release from public health isolation

-30 days since symptom onset or diagnosis

The recovery rate remained steady at 77%.

The City of Appleton announced early Sunday evening that 10 residents have tested positive for COVID-19.

The new cases bring the total cumulative number of cases to 186. Out of those, 75 residents are in isolation, and 107 have been released from isolation. Four others have died from the virus.

Nine of the new cases live in Outagamie County, while one other lives in Winnebago County.

The CDC says this is not an all-inclusive list. Consult a medical provider about any symptoms that are severe or concerning.

Prevention

The coronavirus is a new, or "novel," virus. Nobody has a natural immunity to it. Children and teens seem to recover best from the virus. Older people and those with underlying health conditions (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease) are considered at high risk, according to the CDC. Precautions are also needed around people with developing or weakened immune systems.

To help prevent the spread of the virus:

  • Stay at least six feet away from other people
  • Avoid close contact with people who are or appear sick
  • Stay at home as much as possible. Cancel events and avoid groups, gatherings, play dates and nonessential appointments
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask. At a minimum, use a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Clean frequently-touched surfaces and objects daily (e.g., tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles).
