Escambia County COVID-19 Hospitalizations Fall To Lowest Level Since Early December

February 18, 2021

The number of Escambia County COVID-19 daily hospitalizations has fallen to the lowest level since early December.

There were 107 people currently hospitalized due to COVID-19 in Escambia County on Wednesday. That’s the lowest since December 9 and coming off a spike of 291 on January 14.

COVID-19 hospitalizations between the three local hospital systems are continuing to go down, but it’s important that we continue to work together to bring these numbers down for our community and for our hospitals,” Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson said Wednesday.

The numbers in the graph indicate daily hospitalizations in Escambia County and are provided daily by Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital, Baptist Hospital and West Florida Hospital. The daily numbers are not cumulative.

    The virus has not run its course. The mask wearing is the number 1 way to reduce the infection rate

    Not sure how they count hospital patients. Most after five days goes to a rehab. No one can tell me if i am in rehab if it counts as hospitalized. I am under just as much medical here at rehab as the hospital.
    my 16th day in rehab….
