MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) – The coronavirus continues to spread in Wisconsin as local governments and businesses are trying to slow it down with mask orders.

The state reports 870 new cases, or almost 6% (5.92%) of the 14,694 test results it received in the last 24-hour period. Fifty-six of Wisconsin’s 72 counties reported new cases. Wisconsin now has a total 51,049 people who’ve tested positive.

There are 9,704 cases still active, which is 19% of the confirmed cases. That’s notable, because the percentage of active cases was rising. It’s back below 20% for the first time since early this month.

The state says 40,416 people are considered recovered.

Six more people died. Overall, the death toll rose by 5 to 911 after the death count in Fond du Lac County was revised on further review. The deaths were reported in Milwaukee (1), Racine (2), Rock (1), Washington (1) and Waukesha (1).

The percentage of deaths remains at 1.8% of known cases; that’s plateaued for three days after a slow but steady decline.

Wisconsin has now tested more than 900,000 people (902,440) for the coronavirus over the course of almost six months.

Forty-six more people were hospitalized for COVID-19 in the past 24 hours. With deaths and discharges, there are now 271 COVID-19 patients hospitalized, with 86 of them in intensive care, the state Department of Health Services reports. The percentage of coronavirus patients hospitalized for COVID-19 is down to 8.9%, down one-tenth of a percent from Tuesday.

There are another 107 people in hospitals suspected of having COVID-19 waiting for their test results.

Symptoms:

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

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

Symptoms that require immediate medical attention include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to rouse
  • Bluish lips or face
  • The CDC says this is not an all-inclusive list. Consult a medical provider about any symptoms that are severe or concerning.

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)
