Last week, we reported that eight area hospitals have reported an increased in COVID-19 patients. According to several local hospital administrators, here is what we currently know:

  • COVID-19 cases are on the rise: In the past three weeks, St. Vincent’s has seen a 700% increase in COVID-19 cases. Grandview’s COVID-19 patient volume has increased over 500% in the past month. As of Friday, August 6, UAB is currently treating 105 inpatients with COVID-19, one third of which are in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with the Delta Variant.
  • The majority of COVID-19 patients are unvaccinated: According to St. Vincent’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Timothy Bode, 88% of COVID-19 patients at the hospital are unvaccinated. In addition, 93% of patients on ventilators in critical care units remain unvaccinated.
  • Hospitals are becoming overloaded with COVID-19 patients: In addition to the increase of COVID-19 cases, many healthcare workers are testing positive themselves, which leads to an overloaded work schedule for remaining healthcare workers.
  • Cases are starting to trend in younger patients: Over the past two months, 57-66% of new COVID-19 cases have been among patients younger than 60 years old.
