Active Covid-19 hospitalizations in the United States reached 50,340 on Tuesday, according to the Covid Tracking Project (CTP).
CTP noted on Twitter that hospitalizations in the Midwest are sharply rising. “In the region there are 238 people currently hospitalized per million people,” it said. More than 480,000 coronavirus patients have been hospitalized thus far in the US, according to CTP. Estimates from the US Department of Health and Human Services put the number of Covid-19 patients in US hospitals at 52,609 as of Tuesday, even higher than the CTP.
According to HHS: “More than 70% of inpatient hospital beds in the US are currently filled. About 10.5% of those hospitalizations are Covid-19 patients. Our daily update is published. States reported 1.1 million tests and 87k cases. 50k people are currently hospitalized with COVID-19. Today’s death toll was 1,079. COVID-19 hospitalizations in the Midwest are sharply increasing. In the region there are 238 people currently hospitalized per million people” [CTP].
The CDC updated its guidelines last week advising even fully vaccinated individuals to mask themselves in areas with significant or high transmission.
