Wisconsin COVID update: 76 new cases in La Crosse Co., 1,672 in state

Coronavirus-COVID19-240x135

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP/WXOW) -- Wisconsin's Department of Health Services said there were 1,672 additional cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday.

In their update, La Crosse County is listed as having 76 new cases.

The recent increase of cases led earlier in the day to a travel advisory from Winona County.

In the state, the Department of Health Services reported 12,537 new test results since yesterday, of which 1,672—or 13.3 percent—came back positive.

The remaining tests returned negative results. However, a negative test only means the person tested did not have the disease at the time. They could still contract COVID-19.

Measuring the percentage of new cases returned in tests each day helps differentiate if increases in cases are due to greater spread or more testing, according to DHS.

The seven-day average of daily reported positive cases rose to 1,838, up from 1,261 a week ago.

DHS reported seven new deaths, raising the total to 1,251 people (1.2 percent of positive cases).

The state reported 10,865 new negative test results.

Of all positive cases reported since the pandemic began, 88,131 or 84.6 percent, are considered recovered.

Wisconsin hospitals are currently treating 433 patients with COVID-19. Of those, 131 are in intensive care units.
