For eight consecutive days, the number of people getting vaccinated against the COVID-19 vaccine for the first time was more significant than the number of people finishing their series of vaccines and getting two doses.Numbers reported to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) show that a total of over 3,014,909 citizens of Wisconsin have now received their first dose of Coronavirus vaccine, which is calculated to be 5,953 more than the reports of the day before.
That is 51.8% of the state’s entire population, including 62.6% of the adult population, out of which 66.1% are women, and 58.4% are men.Also, out of those, a total number of 2,867,737 residents have completed the vaccine routinely, that is, getting two doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. That is calculated to be 3,589 more people than the numbers reported on Wednesday and represents about 49.3% of the state’s population, including almost 60% of adults; 59.8%, to be precise.
The DHS had over 899 more coronavirus tests coming out as positive, bringing the total infected people to 619,921 since the first case in the year 2020. The positivity rate has jumped half a percent, from being 5.3% to 5.8%.
That is the average of all the tests that came back to be positive in the past seven days and is an indicator of the virus’s spread in the state. Wisconsin is averaging a total of 556 new cases per day, that is, a big jump in the 7-day average from Wednesday’s 478 cases per day being reported.
