BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Florida Hospitals are continuing to experience a surge in patients needing COVID care. The United States Department of Health and Human Services Tuesday afternoon reported that 11,078 hospital beds in the state are now in use by COVID-19 patients.

At least 1,367 of those adults are in an ICU.

On Monday, 2,096 adults and 101 children under age 18 were admitted to hospitals in Florida in need of COVID help. At least 70 patients died from COVID on Monday in a Florida medical facility.

In Florida, the Monday numbers have not yet been released — we expect an update late Tuesday — but the CDC says 77,156 new cases were logged on Saturday, while 49,548 were recorded on Sunday — a day when fewer testing facilities are open.
