Map reveals how US hospitals are overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients

  • Hospitals across the US are being inundated with COVID-19 patients, as the number of people admitted to intensive care units reaches alarming levels, new data shows.
  • There were 129,748 people being cared for at hospitals for the virus Monday, according to the COVID Tracking Project.
  • It marked the 41st consecutive day that COVID-19 hospitalizations had topped 100,000.
  • The online tracker pinpointed hospitalization hot spots across the country.
  • These record hospitalization levels are not evenly distributed: As hospitalizations in the Midwest and Mountain West have continued to fall, they have risen in California and across the entire US South,” the project said.
  • Maps showed that numerous regions — particularly in Southern California and Arizona — have COVID-19 patients occupying more than 45 percent of their ICUs.
  • Hospitalizations in the Golden State have climbed to concerning levels with more than 22,633 coronavirus patients, of whom around 4,971 are in the ICU, the data shows.
  • The COVID Tracking Project said Arizona’s “hospitalizations have far exceeded the state’s summer surge, and continue to grow each day.”
  • The Grand Canyon State has around 4,997 people hospitalized for the virus with about 1,158 in the ICU, according to the data.
  • The concerning figures come as the country recorded 1,739 virus-related deaths and more than 194,000 new infections, the data shows.
