Number of COVID-19 patients in ICU, state by state

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

Thirty-two 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 July 27 or 28, 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 only 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, as Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington and Wyoming did not report data for either cumulative or current ICU patients.
