With so many new positive tests, the percentage of active cases has increased from 21.3% to 21.4%, although it has increased. The percentage on Thursday was 20.9%. In the past 30 days, 48,208 people were diagnosed and did not receive medical clearance. Since February, more than one-fifth of people in Wisconsin who have tested positive for coronavirus have been diagnosed this month.
The remaining 175,096 people who tested positive are considered to have recovered, or 77.7%, a decrease from the 77.8% of known cases last Friday.
The Ministry of Health Services reported that another 229 people were hospitalized in the past 24 hours. Since February, 11,374 people diagnosed with COVID-19 have been hospitalized with severe symptoms.
The proportion of hospitalized patients diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus dropped slightly from 5.1% to 5.0%.
Currently, there are 11 patients at the Alternate Medical Facility (ACF) on-site hospital in Wisconsin State Fair Park near Milwaukee, three more than Friday. This facility helps state hospitals make room for more severe patients by accommodating patients who are close to discharge but not ready (for example, patients who can walk on their own but still need oxygen). To protect the privacy of patients, DHS did not specify where the patients came from. ACF is funded by the Federal CARES Act, and there is no charge for patients and their care and transportation to and from local hospitals.
Hospital preparation- It will be updated when new figures are reported later in the day.
The World Health Assembly reports that 10.8% of ICU beds in the state are currently open, or 159 ICU beds in 134 hospitals. Overall, the state stated that 14% of all licensed medical beds are open.
In the Fox Valley area of eight counties, there are 9 ICU beds in 13 hospitals there, and 8.8% of all beds are beds. Compared with Thursday, these are slightly improved. The hospital is looking after 150 COVID-19 patients, 21 of which are in the ICU. Eight of the 13 hospitals said they had less than a week supply of gowns.
The seven counties in the northeast have 12 ICU beds in its 10 hospitals, accounting for 17.6% of all beds. This is a reduction of 7 ICU beds from Thursday, but all beds have improved slightly. These hospitals are caring for 167 COVID-19 patients, of which 51 are in the ICU.
Daily changes take into account the number of hospital discharges and deaths.
New community test site
Governor Tony Evers and Andrea Palm, appointed by the Secretary of Homeland Security, announced on Thursday that they have expanded community testing for COVID-19.
By the end of this week, 71 new community test sites will be open until December 10th for testing. Once all open, 56 counties and 7 tribal countries will have regular test sites. Anyone living or working in Wisconsin can be tested. Although you can register on the test site, it is recommended that you register on the COVID Connect website in advance. Each site will be staffed by members of the Wisconsin National Guard and local site management personnel.

*The audience asked us why the state number is different from the number reported on the website of some county health departments. The Department of Homeland Security reports cases from all health departments in the county, including tribal, city and county health departments; county-level websites may not be available. In addition, the public health department will update its data at different times, and DHS will freeze the numbers it receives at the same time each day to prepare the afternoon report.
The deaths reported by the Department of Homeland Security were attributed to or where COVID-19 contributed to their deaths. Most people who are severely infected by the coronavirus have underlying diseases or conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease or obesity, which increase the risk of dying from COVID-19, but live longer if not because of the infection . The state may revise the medical records and death toll after further review, such as the victim’s residence, duplicate records or correction of laboratory results. Detailed information can be found on the DHS website and on the “FAQ”.
Michigan will not update phone numbers on Sundays.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers these as possible symptoms of COVID-19:
- Fever of 100.4 or higher
- Shortness of breath
- Trembling repeatedly
- Muscle pain
- sore throat
- Loss of new taste or smell
- Coronavirus is a new virus, that is, “new” virus. No one has natural immunity to this. It seems that children and adolescents can recover their best from the virus. CDC believes that the elderly and people with basic health conditions (heart disease, diabetes, lung disease) are at high risk. Precautions also need to be taken around people who have developed or weakened immune systems.
- To help prevent the spread of the virus:
- Keep at least six feet away from others
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick or sick
- Try to stay at home
- Cancel events and avoid groups, parties, match dates and unnecessary appointments
- Stay at home when you are sick, unless you need medical care
- Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.If soap and water are not available, please use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask. When coughing, sneezing or the inside of the elbow, at least use a tissue.
Health experts say that masks are still the most effective way for the general public to slow the spread of the coronavirus, but the premise is that they must be properly worn-on the nose and chin. County and state health officials are reminding and urging people to stay at home when they feel unwell, avoid large gatherings, and keep themselves six feet away from people who are not at home.
To help people understand how their decisions affect their own health and the health of others, the Department of Health Services provides a decision-making tool at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/decision.htm. The tool describes the importance of selection and provides suggestions for making the event safer.
