COVID tracking project: Hospitalizations at slight decline


(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — The COVID Tracking Project says on Sunday states reported 1.8 million tests, 195k cases, and 1,618 deaths.

There are 113,663 people hospitalized with COVID-19, a very slight decline.  After weeks of rapid increases, hospitalizations in the Midwest are falling.  So, even though other areas of the country are seeing more people seeking care, the aggregate number of hospitalized people has not risen over the last few days.

Also, every state’s single-day record for new cases has been since November 1, except Hawaii.

Latest numbers from Johns Hopkins University 
Global confirmed cases: 76,750,893
Global deaths: 1,692,067
