More hospitalizations among unvaccinated people
Michigan’s third surge of COVID-19 cases looks similar to the spike recorded last October. The rate of new cases increased with a familiar speed in March as it did during the state’s second surge.
But there are a few things that are different about this new increase – among them are the groups being hospitalized and their vaccine status.
Currently, 74% of Michigan’s hospital beds dedicated to COVID-19 patients are filled, about 2,301 in total as of March 30. About a third of those beds were filled during February’s low period a little more than a month ago.
