Testing

UDOH reports 2,273,483 Utahns have been tested so far, which is an increase of 8,139 people tested since yesterday.

Of those, a total of 376,973 have tested positive for COVID-19. That’s an increase of 646 new positive cases from Wednesday’s report.

The rolling 7-day average for positive tests is 524 per day.

The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of “people over people” is 8.44%. The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of “tests over tests” is 4.03%.

Hospitalizations

There are currently 167 people hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 66 of those patients are in intensive care units. Another 20 patients are hospitalized with suspected cases of COVID-19.

The state’s ICUs are 69.9% full. The ICU beds in Utah’s referral centers are 70.9% occupied.

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.

Health officials reported 23 more Utahns have died from COVID-19. Fifteen of those people died before Feb. 11.

The pandemic has killed 2,015 of the state’s residents.
