99 New Cases in Dane County, 20 in ages 10-19


Dane County confirmed 99 new coronavirus cases Wednesday morning which brings the County’s total to 3,250. Of those 3,250 cases, 1,199 are considered currently active.

There were 31 new cases in people in their 20s while 20 were in those between the ages of 10-19 and four cases below the age of 9. Those in their 30s also experienced a double-digit growth with new cases today totaling 11 while those in their 40s grew by 13 and those in their 50s grew by 11.  There were also seven new cases in those in their 60s, and two new cases in their 70s.

Dane County reported no new deaths since yesterday, which keeps the county’s total at 33 today. Total hospitalizations for the county for COVID-19 grew today to 247 with 29 currently hospitalized for COVID-19. Of those 29 cases, 8 are reportedly in the ICU. Of those new hospitalizations, one is under 10, three are in their 20s, and two are in their 60s.

Of the 99 new cases reported today, 34, or 34.34 percent, were attributed to those who identify as Hispanic. They now make up 15.17 percent of all cases while only making up six percent of the population in Dane County. There were also 17 new cases, or 17.17 percent of all new cases, for those who identify as Black. Black people now make up 12.25% of all COVID-19 related cases in the County while only making up five percent of the population.

Currently, for today, as the number of negative tests reported is lagged by several days, the most updated data on positive test percentage for a day is for July 8, when the positive test percentage has been updated to 6.47 percent while updated numbers now have July 7 at 2.83 percent. Though some data for the dates for July 9 11 are available, Madison365 expects that number to adjust considerably as more negative and positive tests are attributed to those dates in the coming days.

In partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County and Madison365, another pop up, drive-thru testing center will be taking place again this week. You can read more about dates, times and the specific sites in our previous story. Testing is still available today at Alliant Energy Center from 8am – 4pm.

This morning, Madison365 updated our data regarding coronavirus spread in specific neighborhoods and communities by census tract from June 15th through July 14th – including an update to our interactive map by census tract. Today’s data are not included, but will be included in an update next week.

We will have an update of today’s statewide numbers later this afternoon.
