U.S. Coronavirus Hospitalizations Down for 15th Straight Day: Report

Coronavirus-related hospitalizations in the U.S. have been falling for the past 15 days along with diminishing infections, but concerns among public health experts about the variants remain high.

Hospitalizations stood at 107,444 as of Wednesday, a decline since Jan. 12 when the figure was at 131,326, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing the Covid Tracking Project. Plus, the number of ICU units dipped slightly to 20,497.

However, the U.S. is in the throes of its deadliest month since the outset of the pandemic, logging more than 80,000 deaths so far in January. Health experts fear even more deaths in the coming weeks as more resistant strains of the coronavirus spread throughout the country, even as vaccines gradually become more available.

As of Thursday, the U.S. has 25.6 million coronavirus cases and more than 430,000 virus-related deaths, both tops globally, according to data from a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
