In coronavirus cases, the death of COVID-19 is slightly reduced


MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin identified nearly 5,100 new cases of coronavirus (5095) in the results of its most recent Thursday test, continuing the decline near 8,000 cases a week and a day ago. He gave more than one positive result from three tests. The positivity rate was approximately 37% (37.05%) of the 13,751 tests received. The remaining 8653 tests were negative.

Doctors know there is no celebration of death, and at Thanksgiving, the Wisconsin Department of Health added an additional 62 COVID-19-related deaths, bringing the state’s death to 3,240. The mortality rate rose back to 0.87% of all known coronavirus cases, a rate not seen since November 7th. At the current rate, COVID-19 will be comparable to the third most common deaths in Wisconsin next week with only heart disease and cancer, surpassing the 3,786 accidental deaths in 2018.

However, the 7-day average of new cases and deaths decreased. According to DHS data, the state has reported an average of 5,152 new cases per day since last Thursday. The last time there was a similar average was on November 6, when the average was 5,139. The next day he jumped to 5394. The average number of deaths has fallen to 52 deaths a day since last Thursday, after reaching an average of 55 deaths a day on Wednesday.

Prevea President / CEO Dr. Ashok Rai said this on Thanksgiving morning in Action News 2 this morning: “I think it’s important to share the good news: Our numbers are starting to fall, our hospitalizations somewhat trend downwards. The staff will return. We’re doing a little better. How our behavior during the week develops will continue to work better. ”(See his full interviews here.)

Mortality has been reported in 29 counties, with multiple deaths in 15: Barron (2), Bayfield, Brown (3), Chippewa, Clark, Dane (3), Eau Claire, Fond du Lac (4), Green Lake, Iron, Jefferson ( 2), Kenosha (2), Lincoln, Manitowoc, Marathon (6), Marinette, Milwaukee (5), Oconto (2), Outagamie (5), Ozaukee, Polk (2), Richland, Rock (3), Rusk, Vilas, Washington, Waukesha (5), Waupaca (2) and Winnebago (2).

The number of cases and deaths by county will be updated later in this article.

To date, 374,537 people have tested positive for the coronavirus, or 6.4% of the estimated population of Wisconsin. An additional 2.125 million tests are negative.

It’s important to note that many community test sites are closed on the holiday weekend, so test results for the next few days may be lower than the state has seen. In addition, the number may jump for days after the test sites are reopened.

DHS reports that 201 COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized in the past 24 hours. To date, 16,658 people have been hospitalized for severe symptoms of COVID-19, or 4.4% of all known cases.

According to a report by the Wisconsin Hospital Association on Wednesday, 1,892 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals – the number fell below 1,900 for the first time since Nov. 8. Of these, 441 were in intensive care units. We expect to receive fresh data this afternoon.

There were 9 patients in the alternative care facility at the state fairgrounds on Thursday, up from 7 on Wednesday. The purpose of the on-site hospital is to facilitate the release of hospital beds by bringing in patients who are close to being discharged from the hospital but are not yet ready, such as those who are outpatient but still need oxygen.

The percentage of active cases fell below 20%. According to the state, there are 74,658 people who have been positive for the coronavirus in the past 30 days and who have not yet been cured, meaning 19.9% ​​of all cases go back to February last year. 296,577 people are considered cured (79.2%).

Hospital emergency

According to the Wisconsin Hospital Association, there were 275 open ICU beds in 134 hospitals in the state on Wednesday, or 18.75% of the state’s ICU beds. This also indicates that 18.41% of all hospital beds are open for intensive care, intermediate care, medical surgery, and negative flow isolation.

In 13 hospitals in the Fox Valley region, only 5 ICU beds (4.80%) and one intermediate bed were open. Overall, 9.26% of all hospital beds are open in the region, which serves eight counties. Hospitals treat 126 COVID-19 patients, including 20 patients in the intensive care unit.

There are 12 ICU beds open in 10 hospitals in the Northeast region, which is 12.56% of the ICU beds in the seven county regions and 17.78% of the total beds. These hospitals treat 160 COVID-19 patients, 42 in the intensive care unit.

The availability of hospital beds can fluctuate widely from day to day, with new admissions, deaths, discharge for patients treated for all diseases, not just COVID-19 treatment. An open bed does not necessarily mean that it is available to the patient if the hospital does not have staff – doctors, nurses, and even food workers – who support it.

The need for care is broadly unchanged from the last three days. 25 hospitals supply less than a week of supplies. In the previous four days, that number was 23. Meanwhile, 12 have a short paper medical mask, 9 hospitals need glasses, and 7 need an N95 mask.

* Viewers asked us why the state has different numbers than what some county health department websites report. DHS reports the case to all health departments within the county, including tribal, municipal, and county health departments; county websites do not. In addition, public health departments update their data at different times, while DHS freezes the numbers it receives at the same time each day to compile the afternoon report.

DHS reports deaths attributed to COVID-19 or in which COVID-19 contributed to their deaths. Most people severely affected by the coronavirus have diseases or conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, or obesity, that increase a person’s risk of death from COVID-19 but would have lived longer if not because of their infection. After further review, the state may review cases and deaths, such as the victim’s whereabouts, make copies of records, or correct laboratory results. Details can be found on the DHS website and in the Frequently Asked Questions.

** The state of Michigan does not update Sunday numbers. Monday’s figures include updates since Saturday’s reporting deadline.

Symptoms

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

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

Prevention

  • The coronavirus is a new or “novel” virus. No one has natural immunity to it. Children and teenagers seem to recover best from the virus. Older people and those with a medical condition (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease) are considered a high risk according to the CDC. Precautions are also needed among people with developing or weakened immune systems.
  • To prevent the virus from spreading:
  • Keep at least six feet away from other people
  • Avoid close contact with patients or apparently patients
  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Delete events and avoid groups, gatherings, game days, and unimportant appointments
  • Stay at home if you are ill unless you receive medical attention
  • 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 the very least, use a cloth if you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
