COVID-19 hospitalizations increase by more than 50% in weeks


Mississippi’s leaders continue to express concern over rapidly increasing cases of coronavirus and hospitalizations.

The Mississippi Department of Health reported that 490 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 on June 27, followed by 602 on July 1.

This week, 942 people were hospitalized with the virus. Gov. Tate Reeves and State Health Officer Thomas Dobbs have repeatedly warned in recent days that hospitals in Mississippi are running out of beds.

In the past week, the state’s top hospitals have had from zero to only a handful of beds available for urgent patients.
