Wright County Public Health Releases Weekly COVID-19 Dashboard

Wright County Public Health has released its weekly COVID-19 dashboard and, for the second straight week, the county has shattered the previous weekly record for new confirmed cases and saw a significant spike in the number of cases requiring hospitalization.

Prior to last week’s dashboard, the previous weekly high for new confirmed cases was 215 in one week. Last week’s numbers, which were reported the afternoon of Oct. 29, reported 397 new cases, bringing the county’s total number of confirmed cases to 2,731, with 138 cases requiring hospitalization and 16 resulting in death.

The totals for this week included 626 new confirmed cases, 45 of those requiring hospitalization and no deaths. That brings the county’s total of confirmed cases to 3,357, with 183 requiring hospitalization and 16 deaths.

This is not merely an issue of a surge in cases in Wright County. This week alone, the State of Minnesota has reported single-day highs in new cases twice and set a new daily high in deaths earlier this week as COVID-19 continues to see a surge in numbers in the Midwest.
