Utah Reports Record-Breaking COVID-19 Hospitalizations

Coronavirus hospitalizations in Utah have shattered prior record highs as the state’s most severe surge persists. 

Utah has reported its highest number of hospitalizations yet with 366 COVID-19 patients, surpassing the record of 348 patients set on Monday. Last week officials with the Utah Hospital Association told Gov. Gary Herbert that if the number of coronavirus patients did not decrease, state hospitals may have to transfer patients that are not improving out of intensive care units to make room for others. Utah reported six new deaths from the coronavirus on Tuesday, with the total fatality count statewide rising to 620 people.
