The state reported 13 new deaths, bringing the state’s COVID-19 death toll to 6,412.

The state received 3,890 results for people tested, or testing for the coronavirus, for the first time Saturday.

Out of those results, state officials say 689 more people were found to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, which is 17.71% of all results.

The state reports new deaths in Brown, Kenosha, Manitowoc, Marinette, Milwaukee, Outagamie, Rock, Sauk and Walworth Counties.

The state says more than 15% (15.3%) of all eligible residents have received at least one shot – a total of 888,684 people.

Earlier this week, state health officials said Wisconsin is on target to expand eligibility for the vaccine next Monday, March 1.

Deputy Health Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk said Thursday, “We couldn’t take our whole vaccine supply and give it to educators, because we need to keep vaccine available for people who are 65 plus.

Action 2 News continues updating its guide to vaccination clinics and health agencies distributing the COVID-19 vaccine.

The DHS says 75 people were hospitalized for COVID-19 in the past 24-hour period, which remains above the 7-day average of 53 hospitalizations.

More than 26,000 people in the state (26,088) were hospitalized for COVID-19 treatment at some point, or 4.6% of all cases.

The Wisconsin Hospital Association reports 304 people are hospitalized with COVID-19 across the state Saturday, with 80 of them in intensive care units.

Locally, there are 11 COVID-19 patients hospitalized in the Fox Valley region, including 3 in ICU.

These are beds for all patients, not just COVID-19, and because a bed is open or available doesn’t mean a hospital can put a patient in it if there isn’t enough staffing, including doctors, nurses and food services.

* Cases and deaths are from the daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers.

The DHS reports cases from all health departments within a county’s boundaries, including tribal, municipal and county health departments; county websites may not.

The DHS reports deaths attributed to COVID-19 or in which COVID-19 contributed to their death.
