WISCONSIN (WAOW) — A two-day streak of reporting no new deaths from COVID-19 has ended.
On Tuesday morning, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) reports that 33 additional individuals have died as a result of the virus.
Now, the total of reported deaths in the state is 6,317. This is about 1.1% of all confirmed cases in the state.
As of Tuesday, the total of confirmed cases was 560,564. DHS only considers 8,562 of those cases as still active.
It's common for reported deaths to spike on Tuesday's, as health departments are catching up on data. It's so much a trend that most reported death records have occurred on Tuesday's.
At most, the state has gone three consecutive days without reporting any new COVID-19 deaths, and that occurred back at the beginning of September.
