What do you think about TMC stopping reporting ICU capacity & Florida not breaking down hospitalization by local level?


Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration posts overall hospitalization numbers on its public website but does not break out COVID-19 patients or specifics on how many of them are hospitalized, admitted, discharged and in intensive care beds. The Florida Department of Health does not show daily new hospitalizations but rather a cumulative current total that does not illustrate peaks or trends at the county or state level.


Texas Medical Center hospitals have stopped reporting key metrics showing the stress rising numbers of COVID-19 patients are placing on their facilities, undermining data that policy makers and the public have relied upon during the pandemic to gauge the spread of the coronavirus.

The change came one day after the hospitals reported their base intensive care capacity had hit 100 percent for the first time during the pandemic, with projections showing the institutions — which together comprise the world’s largest medical complex — were on pace to exceed their “unsustainable surge capacity” by July 6.
