Massachusetts reported 2,109 people in hospital beds with Covid-19. Yesterday, the number was 2,372 - a 12.5% increase in just three days.
The last time we'd seen that many hospitalized Covid-19 patients was a year ago, during the previous winter surge.
As of yesterday, 441 patients were in ICUs - 262 of them intubated.
That compares to the peak ICU day during the last winter surge, Jan. 12, when there were 461 people with Covid-19 in ICUs. The peak day for intubation during that surge was Jan. 19, with 299.
