MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin health officials on Sunday reported 456 new cases of the coronavirus but no new deaths.

The Department of Health Services update shows that the number of COVID19 cases across the state is 12,543. The total number of hospitalizations was 2,038, an increase of 20 from Saturday’s report.

The number of deaths related to the coronavirus remained at 453.

Statewide, 139,674 tests have come back negative. That’s an increase from 134,206 negative tests reported Saturday.

Health officials said 16% of people who have tested positive for coronavirus in Wisconsin have been hospitalized.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.
