Admissions fall for the eighth week in a row

The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Iowa has dropped for the eighth week in a row, with new reported cases following a similar drop, according to data from the Iowa Department of Public Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

There were 121 such admissions to the state since Wednesday’s update, nearly two months after Iowa’s most recent peak of 1,010 COVID-19 patients on January 17. That’s a drop of almost 90% over the last eight weeks.

There are also fewer people with COVID-19 who need intensive care in Iowa – 17 as of Wednesday, about a third fewer than the 25 COVID-19 patients on Iowa intensive care units last week.

New reported cases also fell again this week. There were 1,008 additional COVID-19 cases reported in Wednesday’s update, or an average of 144 per day.
