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.

Wisconsin’s hospitals are reporting, the 7-day moving average of COVID patients hospitalized was 1,503 patients. Of those, 402 are in an ICU. ICU patients made up 25.6% of hospitalized COVID patients.

DHS reports 7,958,447 vaccines and 1,250,722 booster doses have been administered in Wisconsin.
