COVID-19 patients in ICU, state by state: Oct. 28

Of states reporting relevant data, Texas and California currently have the most COVID-19 patients in intensive care, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

Thirty-seven states and Washington, D.C., are reporting current intensive care unit admissions and/or cumulative intensive care admissions. The Atlantic's COVID Tracking Project compiles data directly from the websites of local or state public health authorities. When data is missing from the websites, they supplement available numbers with information from official news conferences. Data was last updated Oct. 26 or Oct. 27, depending on the state.

Becker's has taken this data and ordered the states from highest number of current COVID-19 patients in the ICU to lowest. States reporting cumulative totals are ordered from greatest to least as well.

State populations come from 2019 U.S. Census data.

Editor's note: This is not a comprehensive list. Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington and Wyoming did not report data for either cumulative or current ICU patients.
