10 states where COVID-19 admissions are highest, rising fastest

COVID-19 hospitalizations are ticking back up in the U.S. after more than two months of mostly trending downward or remaining flat, according to the latest available data from the CDC. 

There were 16,239 new admissions for the week ending Nov. 11, up 8.6% from the previous week. While COVID-19 metrics are on the rise again, they remain far below levels seen in previous surges. Still, hospital and public health officials are concerned about how the rest of the respiratory virus season will play out, with the potential for capacity strain in the coming weeks and months as flu and respiratory syncytial virus cases are also on the rise.
