Summary:

Eight new deaths were reported today bringing the total death toll to 1,006. In the past seven days, a total of 45 people have died. Two weeks ago, a total of 55 people had died.
724 positive tests for COVID-19 brings the statewide total to 61,785. The seven-day average is currently 818. There are 9,305 active cases.
A data collection issue in the Wisconsin electronic records system continues to prevent an accurate count of hospitalizations and patients in ICU for the last several weeks.

In just over six months, Wisconsin’s COVID-19 death toll has now surpassed 1,000 people. Since early July, the average number of deaths over a seven day period had been increasing from as low as two deaths per day to over eight per day. In the last week, that number has started to go down.

“Even one death from COVID-19 is one too many,” said Gov. Evers. “To all the Wisconsinites dealing with the loss of a family member, a friend, a coworker, or a neighbor, I express my deepest condolences. Know that our hearts and thoughts are with you, and we are going to continue doing everything we can to fight this virus that has already taken the lives of so many across our state.”

Because of fluctuations in incoming test results, it’s really not valuable to pay close attention to daily percent positive results other than to catch anomalies of high or low testing rates. Instead, let’s look at seven- (orange dotted) and 14-day (gray dashed) averages. As you can see, both time frames are showing an upward trend in the last month. But, there seems to be a leveling off a few weeks ago and a downward turn in the last two weeks.

As continues to be the case, the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to limit time in public places where you could be exposed to people outside your household. If you need to be in public, please practice social distancing (space of more than 6 ft. between you and others), wear a mask or face covering when possible and practice good hygiene (washing hands after any exposure events may have taken place).
