No new cases of COVID-19 in La Crosse County, but Trempealeau County saw a jump of five new cases Sunday.

Those five cases are as many as La Crosse has reported in any single day, which it had done twice.

La Crosse remains at 48 total, while Trempealeau now has 19 and Vernon County remained at 17.

Winona County added one more case to its total, now at 77. Houston County remains at two.


TOTALS
Wisconsin: 510 deaths, 15,277 cases
Minnesota: 869 deaths, 20,573 cases
Iowa: 456 deaths, 17,397 cases (midnight)


Statewide, a day after the second-most cases (481), Wisconsin reported another 400 cases Sunday, along with three deaths. There were 11 deaths on Saturday.

The state has reported 400 or more cases eight times during the pandemic, including each of the past five days. Part of the reason for more confirmed cases is increased testing.

Health officials said 15% of people who have tested positive for the virus in Wisconsin have been hospitalized.

In Minnesota, after back-to-back single-day highs in deaths Thursday and Friday (32, 33), the state reported 10 on Saturday and 17 on Sunday.

Saturday, however, the state did confirm a record 840 new cases. Sunday, that number dropped to 728. Minnesota has had over 800 cases in a single day three times, including two of the past three days, during the pandemic. It’s been over 700 cases in a day 10 times.

Approximately 13 percent of Minnesota’s COVID-19 cases have required hospitalization. 

A day after Iowa reported a single-day high 25 deaths, there were five deaths Sunday, along with 263 new cases.

Worldwide, there are 5.4 million cases and 345,064 deaths. Here’s a look at the highest countries in those categories.
