WISCONSIN (WAOW) — The number of COVID-19 patients receiving treatment in any of Wisconsin's 134 hospitals continue to decrease.
In fact, according to the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA), those receiving treatment in ICU's is almost at a record low since the organization began tracking them.
As of Monday afternoon, WHA reports that there are 346 COVID-19 patients in the state, of those 95 are in ICU's.
The total of current patients is comparable to that of mid-September 2020.
Sunday's report of COVID-19 ICU patients was 83, coming close to a record low. Since WHA began reporting on COVID-19 hospitalizations back in April, the fewest COVID-19 ICU patients occurred on July 5 with 65.
While Monday's 95 patients doesn't puts a little more space between current hospitalizations and the record, it is still the fewest COVID-19 ICU patients since mid-July.
In the North Central Wisconsin region there are 41 COVID-19 patients across 17 hospitals, and of those 16 are in ICU's.
Both of these statistics are comparable to hospitalizations in mid-September.
