COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to drop

The number of Florida patients hospitalized with COVID-19 continued to drop during the weekend.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services posted data Monday showing that Florida hospitals had 4,847 inpatients with COVID-19, down from 5,414 on Friday.

The data Monday also showed 1,307 patients with COVID-19 in intensive-care unit beds, down from 1,425 on Friday.

The updated numbers reflected a steady decrease during the past month in COVID-19 patients needing hospitalization, after a surge in July and August caused by the highly contagious delta variant of the coronavirus.
