The United States broke a new record for hospitalizations due to Covid-19 on Tuesday, with more than 145,000 people admitted to health centers, according to data from the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS).


In total, there are 145,982 patients hospitalized in the country with the coronavirus, of which 4,462 are minors.

The figure exceeds 142,273 patients admitted on January 14, 2021, the highest number that had been registered so far since the start of the pandemic.

On the other hand, pediatric hospitalizations have surpassed the previous waves, and today there are about 5,000 minor patients hospitalized with Covid-19.

Right now, the highest hospitalization rates are in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio.

The United States reported 1.48 million new cases of Covid on Monday, according to Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the highest daily total of any country in the world amid the spread of the Omicron variant.

Nearly five million new cases of Covid-19 were reported across the country last week from January 2-8, a record weekly increase since the start of the pandemic in the country, according to JHU data. Last week up to 11,000 new deaths were reported.

However, the true death toll from the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States is probably not being accurately recorded, as many deaths are not counted because they occur months after infection, according to the CEO of a company of insurance.

The deaths that are being recorded as COVID-19 deaths "greatly underestimate the actual death losses among people of working age from the pandemic," said Scott Davison, CEO of OneAmerica.

Deaths from the aftermath of COVID-19 are difficult to track, as the virus may no longer be present at the time of death, but may have previously weakened organs or created new deadly diseases.
