The seven-day average has slowed in recent days, though it still is trending upward, and now sits at 914 new cases per day, from 868 a week ago.

DHS also reported one additional death due to COVID-19, for a total of 893 lives lost in Wisconsin.

There are currently 250 patients hospitalized, including 85 in intensive care.
