BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The United States Department of Health and Human Services reports that 280 people died in Florida hospitals from COVID-19 on Monday. The number is not cumulative over several days or part of a data conspiracy — both persistent claims made about the data we report. HHS says that the 231 Florida hospitals that report data to the federal government logged 280 COVID-19 deaths on Monday.

Additional data from HHS: 15,682 hospital beds are currently being used for COVID-19 patients in Florida hospitals. On Monday, 1,766 adults were newly admitted to Florida hospitals for COVID-19 care.

The pediatric units continue to be busy statewide. HHS says 116 children under age 18 were admitted to Florida hospitals in need of COVID-19 treatment.

Intensive Care Units in Florida appears to be back on upswing. There are now 3,426 patients in Florida ICU’s for COVID-19 care. That represents more than half of all people in a Florida ICU.

Refrigerated trucks continue to be stationed at hospitals across Florida to handle a potential overflow of bodies. At least 1,937 people have died in Florida hospitals over the past seven days from COVID-19, according to federal statistics.

Approximately 2,665 adults in Florida are so sick with COVID-19 that they require the use of a ventilator to breathe.

At least 45 hospitals in Florida are experiencing a “critical” staffing shortage. HHS says 49 Florida hospitals expect a critical staffing shortage over the next week.
