What the data show: Among the 40 states that have consistently provided data, COVID-19 hospitalizations are taking up a smaller percentage of all occupied hospital beds in many states, including hotspots like Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

No more than 25% of hospital beds in any state are occupied by coronavirus patients.

Yes, but: Hospitalization rates aren’t dropping, and in some cases are rising, in several states, including Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico and Virginia.

The aggregate hospitalization rate of 14 states monitored by the CDC also appears to still be cresting.
