Coronavirus Hospitalizations Fall, But Deaths at All-Time High: Report

The number of reported coronavirus-related hospitalizations in the U.S. fell below 100,000 this weekend for the first time in nearly two months — a welcome sign as virus-related deaths hit an all-time high last month.

The U.S. logged 95,013 coronavirus-related hospitalizations Sunday, one day after the total decreased to 97,561, CNN reported, citing statistics from the COVID Tracking Project.

The last time the number of hospitalization numbers had been fewer than 100,000 was Dec. 1, CNN reported.

However, January was the deadliest month thus far in the pandemic, with the 95,369 related deaths easily surpassing the previous mark of 77,486 set the month before, according to data compiled by a Johns Hopkins University tracker.

As of Monday, the U.S. has roughly 26.2 million coronavirus cases and 441,367 virus-related deaths, both tops globally, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
