Sunday, June 28

  • People in their 20s continue to have the most positive cases of any age group
  • MDH reports 523 new cases, 8 new deaths
  • Single-digit deaths for the eighth straight day
  • Nearing 600,000 total number of tests processed across the state
  • No deaths reported in Wisconsin

2 p.m.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WDHS) reported no new deaths statewide on Sunday in connection with the coronavirus.

Since the pandemic began, 777 people have died in Wisconsin - or 3% of the total reported cases.

Health officials reported 418 new positive cases, bringing the total number of cases throughout the state to 27,743 since the pandemic began.

3,393 Wisconsinites have been hospitalized due to complications from the virus, or roughly 12% of total reported cases. The department reports the state is currently handling roughly 239 total COVID-19 patients, with 89 of those requiring intensive care.

To date, a sizable portion of reported cases of COVID-19 have centered around Wisconsin's more populated counties, namely, Milwaukee County (with 11,110 cases and 389 deaths), Brown County (with 2,826 cases and 42 deaths), Racine County (with 2,151 and 61 deaths), Dane County (with 1,647 cases and 32 deaths) and Kenosha County (with 1,478 cases and 43 deaths). 

A majority of Wisconsin's COVID-19 cases - similar to Minnesota's - tend to skew toward the younger demographics between the ages of 20 to 59 (though an increase in age bracket typically entails a decrease in share of cases).

By comparison, those 60 years and older represent a much smaller percentage of the state's total reported cases, but represent a majority of its death count.
