WISCONSIN (WAOW) — For the second day in a row, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reports no new deaths from COVID-19.
The last time the state went several days without reporting additional deaths was at the beginning of September, where there was no reported deaths from the 6-9 that month.
Still, throughout the pandemic, 6,284 individuals have died from the virus in Wisconsin, which is about 1.1% of all confirmed cases.
Despite no new deaths, the seven-day average remains at 17, only a slight dip from the day before.
On Monday, the state adds 423 new cases and 3,251 new negative test results.
The latest report brings the total of confirmed cases to 559,998. Of those, DHS only considers 8,629 or 1.5% of the cases to be active.
The seven-day average for cases dips slightly to 612.
DHS also reported 32 people were newly hospitalized.
As of Sunday afternoon, 347 COVID-19 patients were being treated in Wisconsin hospitals, down three from the day prior.
Of those, 83 are in the ICU, down three from the day before, according to the Wisconsin Hospital Association. This is the fewest COVID-19 patients in ICU's since mid-July and just above the record low since WHA began tracking hospitalizations.
As of Tuesday, a total of 1,186,325 vaccines have been administered throughout Wisconsin.
So far, 13.9 percent of Wisconsinites have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine. 6.1 percent of the state has complete the vaccine series.
