More Than 1,300 Hospitalized In Florida For COVID-19

TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) - Florida hospitals had 1,319 patients with COVID-19, including 239 in intensive-care units, according to data posted Thursday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The 1,319 inpatients were up from a total of 1,228 on Monday --- though the numbers remained far below hospitalization totals during the summer when the delta variant of the coronavirus swept across the state.

The 239 intensive-care unit patients was the same number reported Monday by the federal agency.

After the summer surge in COVID-19, cases and hospitalizations dropped in September, October and November.
