Covid-19 hospitalizations are dropping in the Northeast. In other parts of the country, they’re rising
Some states are starting to see infection numbers and hospitalizations drop. But it is not the case everywhere. As cases seem to begin plateauing, Covid-19 hospitalizations in the Northeast are down by about 11% after reaching a peak about a week ago and have also dropped slightly -- about 6% -- in the Midwest region, according to data from HHS. And new Covid-19 hospital admissions are beginning to decline nationwide, a sign total hospitalizations may soon begin going down too in every part of the country.
