  • Yesterday, Wisconsin reported cumulative totals of 179,329 negative results and 14,877 positive results, indicating a cumulative total of 194,206 people have been tested.
  • The difference in the cumulative total numbers indicates 7,277 more people were tested for COVID-19 over the past 24 hours, on a par with the median number of people tested in the past seven days (7,277).
  • The difference in the cumulative positive totals indicates 400 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the past 24 hours, 81 fewer than the median number of new cases reported in the past seven days (481).
  • Wisconsin reported a cumulative total of 510 deaths attributed to COVID-19 yesterday, and a cumulative total of 507 deaths attributed to COVID-19 the day before.
  • The difference in the cumulative total number of deaths indicates 3 new deaths were attributed to COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, 6 fewer than the median number of deaths reported in the past seven days (9).
  • The cumulative total number of people tested in the state (201,483) is 3.46% of Wisconsin’s 2019 population of 5,822,000.
  • The cumulative total number of positive cases in the state (15,277) is 7.58% of all people tested.
  • The cumulative total number of deaths in the state attributed to COVID-19 (510) is 3.34% of all positive cases.

The trends in Wisconsin indicate more positive cases as more testing has been done, while deaths remain relatively flat – although it’s worth noting that the trend had been toward fewer deaths as little as three days ago (compare to WI DHS update 052220):
