Florida COVID-19 Inpatients Top 2,000

The number of Florida hospital inpatients with COVID-19 saw little change during the past week.

The number of Florida hospital inpatients with COVID-19 has topped 2,000 amid a steady increase in infections in the state.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services posted data Monday showing that 2,018 inpatients had COVID-19, up from 1,941 in a Friday count.

The new data also showed that 158 COVID-19 patients were in intensive-care units, down from 168 on Friday.

The Florida Department of Health released a report Friday that showed continued increases in COVID-19 cases in the state. The Department of Health said the state had a reported 60,204 new COVID-19 cases during the week of May 13 to Thursday.

That was up from 39,374 new cases the previous week and was a significant jump from March and April. For example, the state reported 8,040 cases during the week that started March 11.

The increases have come as variants of the coronavirus have developed and spread. The numbers, however, remain far lower than early in the year, when the highly contagious omicron variant swept across the state.
