Wisconsin coronavirus cases bounce back up

MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Coronavirus cases bounced back up in Thursday’s report from the state Department of Health Services. There were 943 positive results — twice as many as Wednesday’s 478 positives even though the state only received about 2,500 more tests.

With 12,415 total test results, 7.6% were positive, reversing the progress of the past four days and, by our measure, putting the 14-day trend back on an upward trajectory.

Positive tests came back in 60 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties.

Thursday’s results bring Wisconsin to 63,206 total confirmed cases since the state’s first case on February 5. There are 8,931 cases still active, or 14.1%. Another 53,239 people (84.3% of cases) are considered recovered, meaning it’s been 30 days since they first showed symptoms or tested positive, or their absence of symptoms or release from isolation are medically documented.

The death percentage remains at 1.6% with 7 more deaths, including deaths in Marinette and Waupaca counties. Thursday afternoon, the City of Menasha reported its first COVID-19 death. We only know the patient was an adult. They will be added to the state numbers in the coming days.

Through Thursday morning, a total 1,018 people have died from COVID-19 since the first deaths on March 19. The state only includes deaths from the disease caused by the coronavirus in this statistic; it separately tracks “probable COVID-19 deaths” where the virus is suspected but the victim wasn’t tested or COVID-19 was only a contributing factor.

Forty-five more people were hospitalized for COVID-19 in the past 24 hours. Now there are 5,170 patients who were hospitalized during their treatment.

The Wisconsin Hospital Association reports 384 COVID-19 patients in hospitals and 113 in ICU. There are 289 ICU beds available for all patients needing critical care, or 19% of ICU beds in the state.

The WHA also reports 35 of the state’s 133 hospitals report less than a week’s supply of gowns on-hand. There are 27 hospitals short on goggles, 26 in need of paper medical masks, and 24 with a shortage of N95 masks.

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 peopleAvoid close contact with people who are or appear sickStay at home as much as possibleCancel events and avoid groups, gatherings, play dates and nonessential appointmentsStay home when you are sick, except to get medical careWash 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% alcoholCover 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.
