Key Facts

  • CNN — Fewer people are hospitalized with Covid-19 in the United States now than at any other point in the pandemic, but hospitals and staff continue to feel the strain.
  • As of Friday, there are 16,138 people in the hospital with Covid-19 – fewer than there have ever been since the US Department of Health and Human Services first started tracking in July 2020.
  • While the strain on the US hospital system directly related to treating Covid-19 patients has been significantly reduced, experts say that many hospitals are still burdened by staffing shortages and other patients who are coming in sicker after postponing care during the height of the pandemic.
  • The broader snapshot of hospital capacity offers a stark contrast to the CDC’s “COVID-19 Community Levels” map, which tracks new hospital admissions and beds in use specifically for Covid-19 patients.
