Hospitalizations Increasing

Published on June 17th, 2020

South Carolina has been named in several national news articles as one of a handful of states seeing increasing hospitalization numbers.  Following yet another record-breaking weekend with more than 1,500 new COVID-19 cases in South Carolina, hospitalizations are up — continuing an alarming trend since the state re-opened for business.

This week, thousands of COVID-19 patients were hospitalized across South Carolina, according to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC). This is the highest number reported since the state began tracking the metric in early May. In the last seven days, the state has averaged 517 COVID-19 hospitalizations per day — an increase from the previous week (468) and the week before that (405).

According to SCDHEC, Horry, Chesterfield, York, Spartanburg, Anderson, Marion, and Sumter counties are reporting more than 75 percent hospital bed occupancy.  South Carolina ranked only 40th in the nation this week when it comes to coronavirus testing per capita, according to data from The Covid Tracking Project.
