Vt. health department provides hospitalization data

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) We are now getting a sense of how many Vermonters with COVID-19 are sick enough to be in the hospital.

The Vermont Health department Tuesday said 21 patients who tested positive for COVID-19 are hospitalized. Another 52 already receiving treatment in the hospital are suspected of having coronavirus but their illness has not been confirmed by a lab test.

The data is provided by the Vermont Healthcare Emergency Preparedness Coalition and is based on hospital reports.
