The latest coronavirus numbers in Wisconsin show some good news.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported that nearly 92- percent of people who’ve ever tested positive for the virus have now recovered.
DHS also reported that the state’s seven-day positive average fell below nine-percent. But DHS, however, is also reporting an uptick in deaths. The state’s death rate is now at one-percent.
However, nationally the trend isn’t the same. More than 120-thousand Americans spent Christmas Eve in the hospital fighting the coronavirus.
The COVID Tracking Project reported more than 22-thousand of those patients are in intensive care units. The Project also recorded nearly three-thousand more deaths and says Thursday’s numbers don’t paint a full picture since a dozen states didn’t fully report their data. It also warned there won’t be consistent numbers over the holidays.
Nearly 330-thousand Americans have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began early this year.
