MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – COVID-19’s downward trend in Wisconsin continued through the weekend. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) reports that the state has only confirmed 739 new cases confirmed in the past 24-hour period. It is the first time since Christmas Day that the state confirmed fewer than 1,000 cases in a single day, and the first time since October 30 that it happened on a day other than a public holiday.

DHS says the state has an average of 1,941 cases a day (1,941). This is the first time this target has been below 2,000 since November 2, according to DHS’s website. Tests confirmed a net 3,877 cases since Friday’s state COVID-19 report. It includes 743 cases in the WBAY viewing area over the last 3 days. Brown County has passed 69,000 cases since the beginning of the pandemic. Sheboygan County reached 29,000 cases.

For the first time since early November, the positivity rate dropped to below 10%, with 9.8% of all test results in the last week positive for the COVID-19 virus. One month ago, 27.8% of tests confirmed the virus.

DHS has received a total of 47 reports of COVID-19 deaths since Friday. DHS says the state has an average of 18 deaths a day due to the disease caused by coronavirus. The rolling average has risen slightly from 17 on Friday. Outagamie County reached 300 COVID-19 deaths. Its death toll rose by 1. Dodge, Fond du Lac and Marinette each reported one death to the state since Friday. Shawano and Waupaca counties each reported two. County cases and deaths are listed at the end of the article.

The total number of hospital admissions in the pandemic was revised and dropped from 57,825 on Friday to 57,653. No explanation was given for the change, but DHS would often review and confirm data. We see this most often in county cases and death rates if a person was added more than once.

As of Friday, state hospitals treated 1,052 COVID-19 patients, including 204 in the intensive care unit, according to Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA). This metric was on the verge of falling below 1,000 over the weekend for the first time since November 8 last year. WHA does not update patient numbers on weekends, so we get the latest information after 3.30pm this afternoon.

Hospitals in the Northeast Health Region in 7 counties treated 132 COVID-19 patients on Friday, 27 of whom were in intensive care. The Fox Valley region with 8 counties accounted for 76 patients and 12 in the intensive care unit.
