According to the data, the number of hospitalized Americans with COVID-19 has dropped by 50 percent compared to the record level recorded a year ago.

Although new coronavirus cases have more than tripled in the past few weeks and now average 490,000 per day, hospitalization is not rapid.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, three percent of such cases are hospitalized.

According to the CDC, the figure fell to 6.5 percent of hospitalizations in early 2021, with an average daily incidence of about 250,000.

Last week, new hospital admissions across the U.S. averaged 14,700 a day.

Although new hospital admissions are up 60 percent from the previous week – they were less than 16,500 a day last year when most Americans weren’t vaccinated.

While new cases may explode with the strengthening of the Omicron option, deaths are stable and account for a third of those recorded in January last year.

According to the CDC, the number of Americans dying from COVID-19 averages 1,200 a day – well below the record level of 3,400 a year ago.

At its peak in 2021, 6.5 percent of COVID patients were hospitalized.

Health experts say the current wave is different from the peak of 12 months ago, as most of the U.S. is vaccinated and Omicron looks like a lighter option.

The number of COVID hospitalizations in New York has exceeded 10,000 for the first time since May 2020, state officials said Tuesday. More than 1,300 of them are in intensive care units.

The number of people admitted to the new hospital at Empire State House on Monday was 1,700.

It is unknown at this time how many of these patients were hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms and how many were positively tested after hospitalization for other reasons.

In New York, more than 10,000 people have been hospitalized with COVID – the highest number since May 2020.

Some experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, have argued that in the context of the Omicron wave, attention should be shifted away from the increased number of cases, rather than hospitalization.

In an interview with ABC News Sunday, Fauci said, “Unlike in all cases, it is more important to pay attention to those who are hospitalized,” and Fauci said many infections do little or no symptoms.

Some experts have noted that the number of jobs is rising sharply, partly in reverse of the influx of people tested before the holidays – as well as new test requirements for workplaces.

Doctors are in the hospital
Dr. Anthony Fauci said the main focus should be on hospitalization, excluding the total number of people with COVID.
An influx of people tested for the virus was observed during the holiday season.

Andrew Neimer, a professor of health at the University of California, Irvine, said the number of cases has lost importance.

“Hospitalization is a place where you meet a rubber road. It’s a more objective measure, ”Neumer told the Associated Press.

“If I had to choose a single indicator, I would have chosen the hospitalization data.”
