MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – A day after the state broke a daily coronavirus testing record, Sunday’s Department of https://bt-hypnotise.com/ Services report shows another high amount of new cases, but not a record breaking amount.

https://bt-hypnotise.com/ officials say an additional 830 people have tested positive for the coronavirus, which is 10.3% of all the test results returned Sunday. Another 7,259 people tested negative for the virus.

The percentage of positive tests is continuing an upward trend. The percentage of positive tests has climbed daily since Wednesday, which was the lowest percentage all week, at 5.9%. On Thursday, the percentage of positive test results in a single day climbed to 6.3%, and on Friday, it increased to 6.6%. Saturday’s percentage jumped to 7.9%.

Since early February, 42,315 people in Wisconsin have tested positive for the coronavirus, and another 730,902 have tested negative.

52 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties reported an increase of cases, while five of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula’s 15 counties reported an increase.

The statewide death toll increased by one on Sunday, bringing the number of deaths since testing began to 844. The lone death was reported in Trempealeau County, the county’s first death attributed to the virus.

The death toll represents 2% of known cases, a percentage that held steady from Saturday. On Friday, that percentage was 2.1%. That is in part the result of a growing number of younger adults being infected, who are less likely to suffer severe effects of the coronavirus and require hospitalization but may be asymptomatic carriers of the virus.

25 more COVID-19 patients were hospitalized within the past 24 hours. There are now 339 patients in hospitals, with 99 in intensive care units. Out of those who tested positive since February, 4,107 people needed treatment in a hospital.

The state says 8,838 patients’ cases are still active, meaning they haven’t been cleared from isolation. That’s 20.9% of all cases, a slight increase from the percentage for the past three days, which was at 20.8%. That percentage is up from 18% on July 8.

Meanwhile, another 32,628 people are considered recovered, which is a total of 77.1% of all confirmed cases.

Wisconsin currently has 83 public and private labs with a capacity of completing 24,162 tests per day.

The state offers an online a tool that displays COVID-19 activity over the past 2 weeks for every county, including the number of cases per 100,000 residents and whether cases are on an upward, even, or downward trend. You can view it by clicking here.

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)
