State reports 308 new cases — lowest in months — and zero deaths for second straight day


The state of Wisconsin reported just over 3,100 new coronavirus tests on Monday, of which 208 were positive, for a positive test rate of about 9.8 percent. The seven-day average of new cases per day fell slightly to 610.

The seven-day positive rate, which would be less subject day to day fluctuations in testing, remained steady at 2.2 percent, the lowest it’s been March 10 of last year.

No new deaths were reported Monday for the second consecutive day, leaving the total death toll at 6,412. The seven-day average of daily deaths reported remained at 18.

Since March, an additional 159 people have tested positive for COVID but died of other causes.

The state also reported Sunday that just over 492,000 Wisconsin residents have completed the COVID-19 vaccination series, more than 6,000 since Sunday. In all, more than 1.4 million vaccine doses have been administered to more than 912,000 people.

The estimated number of active cases — diagnosed in the past 30 days — fell to just over 7,400, about 1.3 percent of the 564,268 total cases confirmed in Wisconsin.
