Dane County grows by 44 new cases today


Dane County confirmed 44 new coronavirus cases today bringing the county’s total to 5,158. As of this morning, the total number of recovered cases was listed as 4,536.

Dane County’s death toll from COVID-19 remained at 39 this morning, though Sunday the Dane County Sheriff’s office reported the passing of Deputy Rick Treadwell from complications of COVID-19. His death has not yet been included in updated County data.

There are currently 31 people with COVID-19 hospitalized in Dane County with nine of those in the ICU.

Today’s highest concentration of cases were teens aged 10-19, increasing by 10 cases while those in their 30s and 50s followed behind with nine new cases. Those in their 20s, usually the group with the most cases, grew by five today, while children aged 0-9 and adults in their 40s each grew by three cases. Those in their 60s and 70s both grew by two additional cases and adults in their 80s grew by one.

The most updated data on positive test percentage for a single day is for August 24, with the positive test percentage reported at 0.8 percent while August 23 is at 2.6 percent. The positive percentage for August 22 has been updated to 0.7 percent and August 21 remained at 2.9 percent. Madison365 expects that these numbers will be adjusted as more negative and positive tests are fully processed and attributed to the appropriate dates in the coming days. The break down for each day can be found on Public Health of Madison and Dane County’s Dashboard.

Last Thursday, Madison365 updated our interactive Dane County Coronavirus Map. The map will be updated weekly.

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