The number of Americans hospitalized from coronavirus infections hit yet another all-time high Sunday — with 93,238 patients currently admitted, data shows.
It was the second time COVID-19 hospitalizations broke a record over the weekend, with Saturday reporting a total of 91,635 patients admitted, according to the COVID Tracking Project.
Regional graphs tweeted by the organization showed dramatic spikes in recent hospital admissions in some areas, including the Northeast. Hospitalizations in the Midwest, on the other hand, appears to have slowed, the group said.
The stats also reflect alarming surges in specific states.
“In California, the number of hospitalized patients has doubled from 4k November 12 to more than 8k today,” the volunteer-run project noted.
The latest data suggested that Sunday’s new infections and deaths were lower than the average for the previous week, however, the researchers warned the dip was likely a result of “data wobbles” from a lack of reporting over Thanksgiving.
As of Monday, the US has reported 266,887 deaths and 13,385,494 infections, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
