Wisconsin coronavirus testing remains around 5% positive; 511 new cases

MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) - It was another day of record coronavirus testing, with almost 10,000 tests coming back in the past 24 hours, according to new figures released Friday afternoon by the state Department of Health Services.

The state says 9,976 tests were returned -- 566 more than the previous record yesterday. About 5% were positive (5.12%) -- which is on par for this past week -- for 511 new cases.

Milwaukee County accounts for 362 of the 511 new cases, but 36 of Wisconsin's 72 counties had additional case numbers or deaths (see county-by-county case numbers listed below).

The state has now passed 14,000 total confirmed coronavirus cases (14,396) since the first patient was diagnosed in Madison on February 5.

The state's death toll is nearing 500 (496), after 9 more deaths were reported in the state numbers Friday.

There are still almost 400 patients (396) hospitalized for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, with 133 in ICU.

In all, 2,259 patients have been hospitalized for treatment, or 16%. That's 41 more patients hospitalized since Thursday.

So far, 8,362 patients -- or 58% of the total cases -- are considered recovered, meaning 30 days have passed since the onset of symptoms or their diagnoses, or the absence of symptoms or release from isolation were documented.

1. Boats on the highway

All the fibtabs coming up this long weekend and going way up north will make it interesting in two weeks or so. What's a fibtab some might ask? Well us Sconnies call people from IL "f-ing IL bastards" and a friend of mine added the "tab" as the fibs drive up I-90 and I-94 "towing a boat " FIBTABS! IL is still largely closed so they are flocking north, saw them all as I drove home this afternoon.
