MADISON (WXOW) -- There were 17 new deaths recorded due to COVID-19 in the past day and 57 people were newly-hospitalized, according to the latest numbers from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
The Coulee COVID-19 Collaborative said that one of the deaths was in La Crosse County. It raises the total number of deaths since the beginning of the pandemic to 35.
However because of delays in data collection the daily totals don't always correlate to the actual number of deaths on a particular day, although they do over time. Deaths by day are reported by DHS HERE.
