Hospitalization rates have shown a slight improvement over recent weeks, but that's still above the goal: the state Department of health would like to have fewer than 10 percent of hospital beds occupied by coronavirus patients. In December, the Department of Health and Human Services began reporting hospital capacity data at the facility level, which several have used to determine the percentage of hospital beds occupied across the country.

Percentage of hospital beds occupied by coronavirus patients=Seven day average of total adult and pediatric patients confirmed or suspected/Seven day average of staffed inpatient beds D.C. Department of Health confirmed 326 new positive cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday.

This brings the District's total number of positive cases to date to 27,226. Globally, more than by COVID-19, and over 1.7 million people have died, Johns Hopkins University reported Wednesday morning.

“As we approach the winter where hospitalizations typically go up for lots of reasons, including the flu, the capacity we have will not be sufficient.” While those numbers are a small percentage of overall capacity, healthcare leaders say it is important to remember that not all hospital beds are created equal when it comes to a highly contagious disease.

This week OSU said it was at 89% capacity, while its four intensive care units are 93% full. In Southwest Washington, Clark County is reporting 64 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 or who are suspected of having it.

Hitler said local hospitals have worked hard to increase bed capacity for Coronavirus patients, but a pressing problem in this latest wave is having enough staff to treat them. She said in the first two waves of the pandemic locally, hospitals could bring in staff from other regions of the country to provide relief.

“Our hospitals are at record capacity,” said Dr. Nathan Cliché, President of the Washington State Medical Association, on Tuesday. If staff can’t keep up, hospitals reach out to recently retired physicians, and then the state would ask for help from the military.

“There’s a terrible shortage of nurses in this country,” said Betsy Scott, RN and Vice President of SEU 1199. Scott said her daughter and son-in-law were recently diagnosed with COVID-19, prompting nightmares about the potential of seeing those she loved carted off to the hospital where there’s a shortage of staffing, patients are being treated in hallways, and loved ones aren’t allowed to visit.

The Everett Herald reports the number of people in hospitals across Snohomish County due to the virus has risen 400% in the past six weeks. Sitters, Loft, Cliché, and Scott all pleaded with the public Tuesday to continue wearing masks both in public and around people who aren’t in your household, and to continue practicing social distancing measures.

Jay Inslee held a news conference to extend current pandemic restrictions, and lingered on a sobering statistic: that 80 percent of Washington's ICU beds are currently full, and that future projections showed a worst-case scenario where the state's hospitals run out of space. For example, the latest update to Washington's COVID-19 risk assessment dashboard shows King County hospitals at 80.8 percent full.

The trend is highlighted in new data added to the state’s Risk Assessment dashboard today. The updated hospitalization data show occupancy of ICU beds, where capacity is likely to be exceeded first.

“Accurate and relevant data is critical to allow all of us to work together to ensure no individual hospital or region is overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases” said Darcy Gaffe, senior vice president of safety and quality for the Washington State Hospital Association. “As cases have risen again in Washington, it is important to use technology and data analytics, so we can have a better understanding of what resources and capacity we have at our hospitals to help those needing care.

We are committed and honored to work with local and state officials to understand and stop the spread of COVID-19.” John Khan, VP, Chief Data Analytics Officer, and global lead for the AI for Health program, Microsoft. Wear a mask around people you don’t live with (even close friends and family).

Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington, announced new restrictions on residents and businesses as the state deals with record-breaking COVID-19 infection rates. The state is currently undergoing a “third wave” of transmission as average daily cases have doubled in the last two weeks, Inslee told reporters at a news conference.
