Testing

UDOH reports 2,265,344 people have been tested so far, which is an increase of 7,955 people tested since yesterday.

Of those, a total of 376,327 have tested positive for COVID-19. That’s an increase of 658 new positive cases since Tuesday’s report.

The rolling 7-day average for positive tests is 520 per day.

The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of “people over people” is 8.6%. The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of “tests over tests” is 4.16%.

Hospitalizations

Currently, 175 people are hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 73 of those people are in intensive care units. Another 12 patients are hospitalized with suspected cases of COVID-19.

Utah’s ICUs are 71.1% occupied. The ICU beds in the state’s referral centers are 70.9% full.

Referral Centers are the 16 hospitals in Utah with the capability to provide the best care for patients with COVID-19. Because most patients are transferred to these facilities, their utilization is the best reflection of the true hospital capacity in Utah when looking at ICU beds.

Deaths

Two more Utahns have lost their lives as a direct result of COVID-19.

To date, 1,992 of the state’s residents have been killed by the virus.

The following individuals’ deaths were reported Wednesday:

  1. Male, between 65-84, Juab County resident, hospitalized at time of death
  2. Female, between 65-84, Tooele County resident, long-term care facility resident

Vaccinations

The state administered 23,904 more vaccines, bringing the total number of shots in arms to 902,391.

So far, 589,997 Utahns have received at least one dose, and 328,509 people have been immunized with two doses.

There have been 1,108,275 vaccines shipped to Utah.
