The number of people in Wisconsin who have tested positive for coronavirus topped 25,000 on Monday, as the state nears the half-million mark for total tests performed, new Department of Health Services figures show.

In its daily tracker, DHS reported 249 new cases – out of 6,549 tests performed. That continued a trend where percentage of tests coming back positive have been higher than recent averages.

In fact, including Monday’s 3.8 percent, the four highest percent-positives over the course of the past two weeks have been recorded in the past five days.

Only one COVID-19-related death – the state’s 745th – was recorded on Monday. That follows a day in which no new deaths were reported.
