Colorado COVID-19 hospitalizations, deaths increase slightly against a background of general decline


Hospitalizations for COVID-19 in Colorado, which have declined steadily since late April, increased slightly on Monday, with an additional 25 people hospitalized for respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus.As of Monday, 229 people are currently in hospital for COVID-19, up from 204 people on Sunday, according to the latest data from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Reported deaths have also increased after remaining flat for a few days, with another 18 people dying directly from the disease. There were 1,292 deaths on Sunday, compared with 1,274 deaths, according to the state’s latest data.

Death reports to the state health department can differ for days or even weeks, which means that the number of new deaths announced on a given day does not mean that all of them died the day before.

While the number of hospitalizations and deaths has increased, it is too early to know if this indicates a peak in deaths and hospitalizations – the two figures give an indication of the severity of the pandemic.
