UDOH reports 2,463,704 people have been tested — 8,155 more than Tuesday. Of those, 391,177 Utahns have tested positive for COVID-19, which is an increase of 530 new cases.
The rolling seven-day average for positive tests dropped to 394 — down from 406 on Tuesday.
The rolling seven-day average for percent positivity of “people over people” remained at 7.7% while the rolling seven-day average for percent positivity of “tests over tests” remained at 3.8%.
The state has administered 1,768,246 vaccines in total, which is an increase of 30,243 over Monday’s numbers. As of Tuesday, 1,136,477 Utahns have received at least one dose of a vaccine while 714,923 Utahns have been fully vaccinated.
There have been 2,005,910 vaccines delivered to Utah.
Currently, 148 people are hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 59 of those people are in intensive care units.
Utah’s ICUs were 71.5% full and the ICU beds in Utah’s referral centers were 74.2% full Wednesday.
“At about 69% overall ICU utilization, ICUs in Utah’s major hospitals with the ability to provide best care for COVID-19 patients begin to reach staffing capacity,” UDOH officials said. “Seventy-two percent use among all hospitals and 77% in referral center hospitals creates major strains on the health care system. When 85% capacity is reached, Utah will be functionally out of staffed ICU beds, indicating an overwhelmed hospital system.”
No new deaths were reported Wednesday. To date, the virus has killed 2,161 of the state’s residents.
