Aug 1 - Florida breaks record for COVID-19 hospitalizations with 10,207
 

 
A day after it recorded the most new daily cases since the start of the pandemic, Florida on Sunday broke a previous record for current hospitalizations, as the number of patients in hospitals because of COVID-19 once again broke through the 10,000-person threshold.

The Sunshine State had 10,207 people hospitalized with confirmed COVID-19 cases, according to data reported to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

The previous record was from more than a year ago, on July 23, 2020, more than a half-year before vaccinations started becoming widespread, when Florida had 10,170 hospitalizations, according to the Florida Hospital a*sociation.

Florida is now leading the nation in per capita hospitalizations for COVID-19, as hospitals around the state report having to put emergency room visitors in beds in hallways and others document a noticeable drop in the age of patients.

In the past week, Florida has averaged 1,525 adult hospitalizations a day, and 35 daily pediatric hospitalizations. Both are the highest per capita rate in the nation, according to Jason Salemi, an a*sociate professor of epidemiology at the University of South Florida.

The hospitalizations and increasing cases have come as the new, more transmittable delta variant has spread throughout Florida, and residents have returned to pre-pandemic activities.

“The recent rise is both striking and not-at-all surprising,” Salemi said in an email late Saturday.

Federal health data released Saturday showed that Florida reported 21,683 new cases of COVID-19, the state’s highest one-day total since the start of the pandemic. The latest numbers were recorded on Friday and released on Saturday on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.

The figures show how quickly the number of cases is rising in the Sunshine State: only a day earlier, Florida reported 17,093 new daily cases.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has resisted mandatory mask mandates and vaccine requirements, and along with the state Legislature, has limited local officials’ ability to impose restrictions meant to stop the spread of COVID-19. DeSantis on Friday barred school districts from requiring students to wear masks when classes resume next month.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who is seeking to run against DeSantis for governor, on Sunday urged unvaccinated Floridians to get the shots. She said she was heartened by a recent uptick in vaccinations in the state.

“We are already behind the curve and in a worse spot every time the numbers come out,” Fried said at a news conference in Tallahassee. “This surge is and will impact every single one of us.”

Throughout Florida, from Jacksonville to Miami to Tampa, hospitals have become overwhelmed.

Barry Burton, the Pinellas County administrator, told the Tampa Bay Times that some local hospitals are already having to divert ambulances to different locations because of capacity concerns.

There has been a startling rise in the number of children with the virus at hospitals in Miami, many of them requiring intensive care.

Memorial Health’s Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood had seven patients with COVID-19. At Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, there were 17 patients with COVID-19 on Friday, including six in the ICU and one who needed a ventilator, Dr. Marcos Mestre, vice president and chief medical officer, told the Miami Herald.

About half of the patients were under 12, Mestre said, and the rest were older and eligible for the vaccine. But none of the patients with COVID-19 at Nicklaus Children’s on Friday were vaccinated. Most children who get COVID-19 do not need hospitalization, Mestre said.

At the UF Health North hospital emergency room in Jacksonville, COVID-19 patients once again were being put in beds in hallways due to a surge in visits.

But the death rate is super low

Hospitals can handle the overwhelming influx of paients. It's not like there's ever going to be any mass shootings, terrorist attacks, natural disasters or real pandemics in the US ever again.

I had 3 truckers this last week have family members die from complications from COVID. All 3 finally signed up for their vaccine shot.
Sad it takes death to make people wake up. I didn’t want COVID nor did I want a premature vaccine. But the 3 hours of feeling sick from the vaccine is better than the dozens of people I know that had COVID and survived, and of course better than those I know who have passed away.

Sad it took so long, but at least the light bulb clicked and they realized to take care of themselves.

I told my dad the same thing. If I were president I would let people not get vaccines but don't think you would just roll up in the publicly funded hospital after you catch covid. Nah player you had your chance

There's hospitals in Florida were 30 and 40% of it's staff aren't vaccinated. People are coming in with other issues and end up testing positive for covid because they caught it from a nurse's a*sistant.

Obviously vaccinations weakened immune systems, created the variants and launched Bezos into space. This is all just common sense

I was looking at the newest 'rona stats in my South Texas city and compared them to last year's, at this time, and a couple of things stood out to me. Firstly, there is a lower percentage of beds available now than there was at this time last year - at the height of all this - but somehow that aspect no longer warrants nightly news coverage. There are about 50% less hospitalized patients that are "positive", but there are only 6% of staffed beds available across all healthcare systems, compared to last year on this date being 7%. Also, the rate of those on ventilators was 41% last year, compared to 13% now. That says to me, the severity of the illness is lower now, probably due to the number of jabbed citizens and them pushing a new fear factor being "variants", rather than people contracting a novel illness and being sick. This change has been heavily pushed within the last week, although the "delta strain" started circulating a couple months back.

I dunno man, the Portman-Murphy law was signed in 2016, just in time to convince the country that propaganda is only acceptable if it comes from the mainstream media in the U.S. If you don't see this correlation, you haven't been paying attention.

Sorry, I meant only 30 or 40% of hospital staff are vaccinated. But at all the big hospitals most of the staff are vaccinated.

There are less hospital beds because the covid wave last year put a lot of smaller hospitals out of business. They're also trying to use less ventilators now and they have other methods to treat covid patients.

Pure cap

Multiple upstart hospital projects offset and outpaced this supply decline.

Plus regional hospitals/urgent care facilities got TONS of CARES funding, they did not fold en masse like you’re saying.

You just saying sh*t.
