MONTGOMERY — According to the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama Hospital Association, Covid related hospitalizations are dropping in Alabama.
According to the AHA, there were 2,421 adults hospitalized on Sunday and 42 pediatric patients in hospitals statewide. There are 1,541 patients in ICU beds, which exceeds the capacity of 1,530 ICU beds. Approximately 48% of the ICU beds are occupied by Covid patients.
Of those hospitalized with Covid, 13% are fully vaccinated, 4 percent are partially vaccinated, and 83 percent are unvaccinated.
An increase in Alabamians receiving the vaccine since July means approximately half of those older than 12 have been at least partially vaccinated.
