Over 9,000 Die From COVID in the State

Wednesday, December 1st, 2021 -- 11:00 AM

(WMTV) Wisconsin has reached a grim milestone in the COVID-19 pandemic. Health officials report more than 9,000 people have died after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

The Department of Health Services notes 41 people have died Tuesday, bringing the total number of COVID-19 deaths in the state up to 9,019. The seven-day rolling average continues to fluctuate each day, hitting 14 on Tuesday.

Wisconsin crossed 8,000 deaths on Sept. 15, meaning it took about two and a half months for the state to accumulate another 1,000 coronavirus-related deaths. It took the state more than double that amount of time to go from 7,000 to 8,000 total deaths.

DHS also confirmed the most COVID-19 cases in a single day of 2021 Tuesday. With 4,917 new cases, there have now been 875,393 since the start of the pandemic.

You would have to go back to Dec. 4, 2020, to find a higher daily COVID-19 case count, at 4,945 cases. While Tuesday’s cases are the highest of 2021, it’s still more than 2,900 cases fewer than the peak number of new cases on Nov. 17, 2020 at 7,870.

Wisconsin’s seven-day rolling average has continued to rise since Nov. 26, hitting 2,722 Tuesday. It dropped below 3,000 on Thanksgiving when fewer tests were reported and fewer than 1,000 cases were confirmed.
