MADISON, WB (WBAY) – The 7-day average of coronavirus cases in Wisconsin was tempered by just 751 cases diagnosed in a 24-hour period between Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. No longer held back by a low number of test results, Wisconsin’s 7-day average jumped Friday to 3,548 cases per day, from 3,015, an increase of nearly 18% on a day.

The Department of Health Services says 4,521 new cases have been confirmed, offering some relief from Thursday’s report of more than 5,000 cases for the first time in more than 12 months. The state is within 11,000 cases of a milestone of 900,000 cases, which we could reach on Monday or Tuesday at this current rate, adding 100,000 COVID-19 viruses in just over a month. Wisconsin passed 800,000 cases on Nov. 4.

There is also some relief in the 7-day average of the positivity rate – the percentage of all tests that come back positive for the coronavirus. That’s down to 13.1%, down more than half a percentage point in two days. Yet such a high positivity rate has not been seen for a year.

Deaths remain high, with a 7-day average up 20% since Thursday to 24 deaths per day. Thirty-five deaths from COVID-19 have been reported to DHS, according to Friday’s report, with 26 of those dying in the past 30 days, which are the only deaths counted in the 7-day average. The counties in the WBAY observation area reporting deaths were Dodge (2), Fond du Lac, Langlade, Manitowoc, Marinette, Outagamie (2) and Waupaca (3). Across the border, Dickinson and Iron counties in UP Michigan have also reported deaths.

Hospitalizations also remain high, with 222 COVID-19 admissions in the past 24 hours. We calculate that the 7-day average jumped to more than 150 hospitalizations per day, the highest since December 11, 2020, according to our records. At that time, 4.42% of all coronavirus infections resulted in hospitalization; currently the hospitalization rate is 5.27%, but it is on the decline.

The Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) reports that 1,457 COVID-19 patients are hospitalized right now, 11 more than Thursday after taking discharges and deaths into account. Among them, 393 are in intensive care, 16 less than the day before.

Hospitals in the North East Health Care Region have 163 such patients, 40 of whom are in intensive care; this is 1 less in the ICU and 1 more patient overall.

Fox Valley has 111 COVID-19 patients, 25 in intensive care – 1 more in intensive care and 4 more patients in total. Among the 13 hospitals, there is an intensive care bed, 1 medico-surgical bed and no immediately available intermediate care beds, according to the WHA.

In a health briefing Thursday, state health officials and Prevea Chairman / CEO Dr Ashok Rai said the vast majority of hospitalized COVID-19 patients are not vaccinated. Rai added that each COVID-19 patient requires more staff and resources than a typical patient and is hospitalized longer. Health officials are encouraging people to get the shot or get the shot to reinvigorate their immune systems against the virus, with the winter season, more indoor activities, and family and group gatherings approaching.

The state has seen moderate growth in the number of people rolled up their sleeves. Each age group from 12 to 64 has seen its percentage increase in the number of people receiving at least one dose – indicating people receiving their first dose (or in the case of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, first and completed).

DHS reported on Friday that 59.1% of Wisconsin’s total population had now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine (up a tenth of a percent since Thursday). This percentage includes 70.5% of adults (up to a tenth of a percent) and a percentage of the population that is still too young to be vaccinated.

DHS further reported that 56.2 percent of the population had completed their vaccine series (up a tenth of a percent), which includes 67.1 percent of adults.
