Tallahassee Reports has requested the current COVID-19 hospitalization numbers from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (TMH) and Capital Regional Medical Center (CRMC) on a regular basis since June 1st.
Today, June 24th, the hospitals reported a total of 6 COVID-19 patients. TMH reported 3 and CRMC reported 3.
The chart below shows that the number of COVID-19 patients in TMH and CRMC have declined in June by over 50%.
This decline comes amid a recent increase in positive cases in Leon County . Reports indicate approximately 110 new cases in Leon County over the last seven days. This increase prompted the Leon County Commission to mandate face covering in public at an emergency meeting.
Dr. Dean Watson, VP and Chief Integration Officer at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (TMH), recently shared detailed information about COVID-19 and stated that the key indicators are hospitalization and mortality, not the number of positive tests.
Will the recent increase in positive tests result in more hospitalizations? TR will continue to provide updates on current patients in TMH and CRMC.
