Rick Solem



For the second consecutive day, La Crosse County and all the surrounding counties have reported no new cases of COVID-19.

Trempealeau (11 cases), Vernon (12), Houston (2), Allamakee (116) and Winona (75) counties all reported zero cases Wednesday.

Wisconsin: 481 deaths, 13,413 cases.
Minnesota: 777 deaths, 17,670 cases.
Iowa: 400 deaths, 15,877 cases.

Statewide, it’s a different story. Wisconsin reported its most cases ever in a single day. Wisconsin has 528, while Minnesota has 645.

Wisconsin also now has a confirmed case in every county, as Langlade County confirmed its first on Wednesday. The state’s Department of Health reported 6,591 processed test results, also a record-high in Wisconsin. Of those, 8 percent were positive.

Minnesota reported its second-most deaths ever at 29. The high, set on May 6, was 30. The state has seen 28 deaths twice — back on April 24 and May 1.

The Minnesota Department of Health said 26 of those were residents of long-term care or assisted living facilities.

Wisconsin’s death toll Wednesday was 14 — the first double-digit count after four days under 10.

Iowa reported 237 cases and 14 deaths early Wednesday. By the end of the day, however, the death toll rose from 381 total to 400, adding another 19 deaths to that number. The case count also rose from 15,533 to 15,877, which would add another 344 cases.

Worldwide there are over 5 million cases and more than 329,100 deaths from the virus.

The US has the most deaths with over 94,917. The US is one of 14 countries with populations over 100 million. While there are over 94,900 deaths in the country, those other 13 have a combined death toll just over 41,000 from the virus.

Here’s a look at the countries with the most cases, deaths worldwide.
