    The number of Americans being admitted to hospital with Covid-19 is on the rise across the country with 16 states now reporting record high hospitalizations amid the pandemic.

    Coronavirus hospitalizations are currently increasing in 39 states as the number of cases continues to trend upwards. 

    The current uptick in hospitalizations is being driven mostly by the Midwest with 16 states hitting, or nearing, their peak number of Covid-19 patients throughout the pandemic so far. 

    More than 37,700 Americans were hospitalized nationwide with coronavirus on Monday, according to data from The COVID Tracking Project. 

    It is still down from the peak 59,700 hospitalizations that were recorded in April when hard-hit states like New York and New Jersey feared they wouldn’t have enough hospital bed capacity.

    The US is currently averaging about 55,000 new cases per day after rising steadily since September

    At the peak, about 40 percent of New Jersey’s hospital beds were occupied. In comparison, hospital bed capacity in South Dakota and North Dakota – both of which are currently seeing spikes in cases – is currently at 12 percent. 

    Hospitalizations have been on the rise since late September after there was a resurgence in infections nationwide. 

    The US is currently averaging about 55,000 new cases per day. 

    Despite the increase in cases and hospitalizations, there has not been an uptick in deaths like the surges seen in the spring and summer. 

    The number of Americans dying per day has been averaging about 700 for the past month, which is well below the April peak of nearly 2,000 fatalities a day.  

    Deaths are a lagging indicator and can potentially rise several weeks after cases increase.

    Health experts have previously indicated that the death toll may not be as bad as the April surge because a large share of current cases are young people, who are less likely to die, and because of advances in treatment and knowledge of the virus.

    There has been an uptick in the number of young people testing positive since September as college campuses and schools reopened in parts of the country.  

    President Donald Trump has repeatedly put the latest surge in coronavirus cases down to more testing. Health officials, however, also use other key measures including hospitalizations, positivity rates and deaths to track the severity of the pandemic. Those metrics that are not linked to increased testing. 

    Health officials have cited the increases in hospitalizations and the rates at which people are testing positive to show that cases are indeed rising.

    Wisconsin is currently battling one of the worst coronavirus surges in the country with cases, hospitalizations and deaths spiking to record highs. 

    The state is scrambling to contain the resurgence that health officials fear could soon overwhelm its hospitals. The current hospital bed capacity in the state is unclear with health officials last updating the number 10 days ago.    

    Local health officials last week warned about ‘very intense community spread in all age groups’ as they announced a string of grim records.

    Even so, a field hospital erected at fairgrounds outside Milwaukee to treat Covid-19 patients should local hospitals run out of beds remained empty as of Sunday, according to Wisconsin health authorities. 

    Young people aged 20-29 currently account for the majority of cases – 23 percent of all infections – in Wisconsin. One percent of people in that age range have been hospitalized.   

    Wisconsin is one of five states where more than 20 percent of tests came back positive in the last week. 

    The World Health Organization says any test rate above five percent is cause for concern because it suggests there are more cases in the community that have not yet been uncovered. 

    Positive test rates are also high in South Dakota (36 percent), Idaho (30 percent) and Wyoming (20 percent).    

    Nationally, the percentage of tests that came back positive increased to 5.4 percent last week compared to the previous seven days.
