WSAW Wisconsin reports 349 coronavirus cases, no deaths – WSAW

MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin reported fewer than 400 new coronavirus cases on Monday in 42 counties. The 349 positive results are the lowest number of new cases since April 5 when an upward trend began. It should also be noted the state received 2,843 test results for people being tested for the first time or testing positive — the lowest number of test results since April 5.

The state is still on the verge of a milestone 600,000 confirmed cases since February 5, 2020, with a total 599,576 cases as of Monday. The state is currently averaging 647 new cases per day, by our calculations. The positivity rate, indicating the spread of the virus, held steady at 3.3% of all test results when you include people who were tested multiple times.

The state reported no new deaths and revised the death toll downward Sunday to 6,839. Sheboygan County’s health department reported the COVID-19 deaths of two elderly people Monday; they will be added to the state’s report in the coming days.

The DHS says there were 29 hospitalizations for COVID-19 in the past 24-hour period, less than half the 7-day average of 63 admissions per day and the lowest number of new patients since April 11.

Wisconsin saw little progress in COVID-19 vaccinations over the weekend, which is a weekly pattern. The state now has more than 2 million fully-vaccinated residents — a milestone we passed Sunday. Vaccinators reported just 3,230 more completed vaccinations since Sunday’s report, for a total 2,009,464. That’s 34.5% of the state’s population.

The DHS reports 2,527,645 people have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. That’s 43.4% of Wisconsin residents. The state’s vaccinators have given 4,479,776 “shots in the arm” to residents and out-of-state residents, such as people from neighboring states who work here, since December 13.

Tables of vaccinations and coronavirus cases by county both appear later in this article.

Since February 5, 2020, the DHS reports 3,456,450 people in Wisconsin were tested at least once for the coronavirus. Out of these:

  • 599,576 tested positive for the COVID-19 virus
  • 29,441 were hospitalized (4.9%)
  • 6,839 died (1.14%)
  • 583,871 are considered recovered (97.4%)
  • 8,600 are active cases (1.4%)

HOSPITAL READINESS

As we reported earlier in this article, 29 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 between Sunday and Monday mornings, but taking hospital discharges and deaths into account the state’s hospitals had a zero net increase in patients. The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) reports 315 patients are currently hospitalized for COVID-19 treatment, the same number as Sunday. Ninety-eight of these people are intensive care, 4 less than Sunday.

Fox Valley hospitals were treating 13 patients, with 5 in ICU. That’s one more patient in ICU but 7 fewer patients overall.

Hospitals in the Northeast region had 26 COVID-19 patients, with 7 in ICU. That’s one less patient in ICU but one less patient in the region’s hospitals overall.

For hospital readiness, the WHA reports a total 255 intensive care beds (17.4% of all ICU beds) and 1,957 of all beds (17.5%) — ICU, intermediate care, medical surgical and negative-flow isolation — are open in hospitals across the state.

The Fox Valley region’s 13 hospitals have 13 open ICU beds (12.5%) among them, and a total of 104 open beds (12.2%).

The Northeast region’s 10 hospitals have 36 open ICU beds (17.6%) The WHA says there are 185 available beds of all types (19.4%).

These beds are for all patients, not just COVID-19. While we use terms like “available” or “open,” a hospital bed can only be occupied if there’s enough staffing to care for the patient, including doctors, nurses and food services.

* Cases and deaths are from the daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. 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.

** The Michigan Department of Health does not release reports on Sundays.

CDC GUIDANCE ON GATHERINGS

The Centers for Disease Control have announced that fully vaccinated Americans can gather with other vaccinated people indoors without wearing a mask or social distancing.

The CDC’s recommendations also say vaccinated people can come together in the same way – in a single household — with people considered at low-risk for severe disease, such as in the case of vaccinated grandparents visiting healthy children and grandchildren.

The CDC is continuing to recommend that fully vaccinated people still wear well-fitted masks, avoid large gatherings, and physically distance themselves from others when out in public. The CDC also advised vaccinated people to get tested if they develop symptoms that could be related to COVID-19.

COVID-19 TRACING APP

Wisconsin’s COVID-19 tracing app, “Wisconsin Exposure Notification,” is available for iOS and Android smartphones. No download is required for iPhones. The Android app is available on Google Play. When two phones with the app (and presumably their owners) are close enough, for long enough, they’ll anonymously share a random string of numbers via Bluetooth. If someone tests positive for the coronavirus, they’ll receive a code to type into the app. If your phones “pinged” each other in the last 14 days, you’ll receive a push notification that you are at risk of exposure. The app doesn’t collect personal information or location information, so you won’t know from whom or where, but you will be told what day the exposure might have occurred so that you can quarantine for the appropriate amount of time.

SYMPTOMS

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified these as possible symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Fever of 100.4 or higher
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
