Hospitalizations in Minnesota, Update April 2, 2021

By April 3, 2021Commentary

The set of charts below, thanks again to DD, reflects both CV-19 and non-CV-19 hospitalizations.  That sawtooth pattern you see reflects the fact that elective hospitalizations don’t generally occur on the weekend.  If you look at the chart of CV-19 hospitalizations, the last chart, you can see that it looks exactly like the chart of cases, with a slight offset to account for the lag in time to hospitalization.  You can also see that at no time was hospital capacity actually threatened by CV-19 needs, some of which reflect remdesivir use, or CV-19 that was identified or contracted in the hospital.
