Total COVID-19 cases in WI surpass 900k, vaccine doses administered in state near 8M


WEDNESDAY 12/8/2021 2:04 p.m.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has reported 901,727 total positive coronavirus test results in the state and 9,237 total COVID-19 deaths.

Of the SARS-CoV-2 variants in Wisconsin, DHS is reporting 3,742 known cases of B.1.1.7 (Alpha), 77 cases of B.1.351 (Beta), 18,706 cases of B.1.617.2 (Delta), and 306 cases of the P.1 variant (Gamma).

COVID-19 data was delayed for a few days due to an upgrade of the Wisconsin Electronic Disease Surveillance System (WEDSS), reports DHS officials.

“The update required some downtime for the system that has resulted in a backlog of processing records. As we continue to work through this backlog, the data reported on our COVID-19 data pages may appear lower than expected for the next few days. For a more accurate representation of COVID-19 in Wisconsin over the course of this upgrade, we recommend looking at the 7-day rolling averages,” read the DHS website on Dec. 8, 2021.
