Wisconsin set a record for the number of new Covid-19 hospitalizations on Wednesday, with 141 patients, Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-Designee Andrea Palmer said during a news conference.
The state reported a total of 2,319 new cases of Covid-19 and 16 additional deaths, Palmer said.
Fifty five of the 72 counties in the state meet the threshold of "very high disease activity level," an increase of 10 counties last week, Palmer said. The rest of the counties are at a high disease activity level.
"Wisconsin as a whole is also at a very high disease activity level," Palmer added.
The state has reported a total of 138,698 coronavirus cases to date and 1,415 total deaths.
