Covid-19 updateCOVID-19 hospitalizations have been on the rise in the U.S. for the past month while a new coronavirus variant spreads.

Weekly COVID-19 hospitalizations increased more than 17% last week, with more than 22,500 new hospital admissions reported, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That means that new hospitalizations have surpassed the peak seen during the late summer wave in the U.S. The trend was expected given that holiday travel and indoor gatherings tend to increase the spread of COVID-19.

The CDC said in a report published Friday that COVID-19, flu and RSV activity are all elevated, but the agency added that hospital bed occupancy remains stable nationally.

“The amount of respiratory illness (fever plus cough or sore throat) causing people to seek healthcare is elevated or increasing across most areas of the country,” the CDC said.
