No new COVID-19 cases in La Crosse, while Minnesota has highest one-day death total



For the 11th consecutive day, La Crosse County has no new confirmed cases of the virus, according to the state website.

La Crosse remains at 26 — though the state website will show 25. Of those 26, 25 now have recovered.

The county is also warning people not to use Wikipedia for totals. It is not accurate. If you Google, for example, “Covid 19 La Crosse County,” a nice map will appear with numbers but those numbers are miscalculated.

Winona County reported its second-consecutive day without any new cases or deaths. There have been 10 deaths, all linked to one senior living facility from Winona’s 61 cases.

In Wisconsin, there were 12 more deaths Tuesday, and 121 confirmed cases. The death toll in the state is now 242 from 4,620 cases.

Milwaukee County added 62 cases and three more deaths. The totals there are now 132 deaths and 2,237 cases.

In Dane County, the numbers jumped Tuesday — two weeks after the election. There were 23 reported cases Tuesday. Before that, there were less than 10 every day since the election — a lot of times between 2-4 new cases. Dane County has a 388 confirmed cases now.

The reasoning could be an increase in testing, not transmission, though news is starting to come out of people who have contracted the virus from in-person voting.

Minnesota tied its highest one-day death toll with 17 today, adding another 97 confirmed cases. The totals in Minnesota are now 160 deaths, 2,567 cases.

Vernon County still has has zero cases. Trempealeau and Houston County remain at one.

Iowa added another four deaths for a total of 83, along with 482 more positive tests. The total confirmed cases there is now 3,641.
