Michigan COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to decline.
The state reported 3,941 hospitalizations adults with confirmed cases of COVID-19, down from 4,173 on Friday and the Jan. 10 peak of 4,580.
Among the thousands hospitalized with the deadly coronavirus, 733 are in the intensive care unit and 467 of those are on ventilators. Another 92 are children hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Last week, Henry Ford Health System and Beaumont Health began suspecting the latest surge, propelled by the highly contagious omicron variant, may have peaked in Southeast Michigan.
Cases statewide are also trending in the right direction Monday. The state reported 39,372 new COVID cases and 36 deaths over the past three days — or an average of 13,124 cases per day. Thats’ down from the 33,551 COVID-19 cases reported over two days on Friday, or an average of 16,776 cases per day.
The positivity rate remains quite high at 32 percent but slightly down from the peak at 35.3 percent on Jan. 6.
However, hospitals remain overwhelmed with patients. The federal government on Monday approved its sixth medical team to assist in hospitals in the state. This time a 25-member medical team will deploy to assist Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, starting on Feb. 7.
