COVID-19 hospitalizations in Connecticut have risen to their highest level in nearly four months, state numbers showed today.
Connecticut currently has 155 hospitalized COVID-19 patients, up 21 from Friday and more than twice the number reported as recently as two weeks ago.
The state hadn’t previously recorded so many hospitalizations at a given time since June 19, when it was still recovering from a devastating spring surge.
Today’s increase in hospitalizations was not concentrated in any particular area of the state but was instead spread across several regions. Fairfield County leads Connecticut with 42 hospitalized patients, followed by Hartford (38), New Haven (36) and New London (25).
