The number of Florida hospital inpatients with COVID-19 increased, but those in intensive-care units remained virtually unchanged, according to data released Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The data showed that 1,359 hospital inpatients had COVID-19, up from 1,298 on Monday.

It also showed that 263 COVID-19 patients were in intensive-care units, down from 265 reported Monday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations have remained relatively stable recently and are far below numbers that surged during the summer as the highly transmissible delta variant spread across the state.

Nationally, 62,204 hospital inpatients had COVID-19, according to Tuesday’s data.
