Every week, we update the three graphics below. They represent the profile of the average person who has died of the coronavirus in Wisconsin, COVID-19 hospitalizations by inpatient’s age group, and a comparison of the most common causes of death in Wisconsin for the years 2019 and 2020. Check back every Thursday so you are always up to date.
NOTE: the Top Causes Of Death In Wisconsin 2019 v. 2020 chart has a lag of about a week and a half because we use CDC data. The deaths related to COVID-19 that are recorded on this chart will be different than the current daily reported number of deaths because of this lag.
Readers have asked us about death from COVID-19 v. death with COVID-19. Unfortunately, this comparison does not differentiate between the two. We have asked DHS for data that would help us determine how many people have died of COVID-19 v. how many people have died with COVID-19. Once we have received this data from DHS, we will update our charts accordingly.
