US National Hospital Growth: June 2 Prior Week Growth vs. April 1
Introducing the UBS Weekly National & State Hospital COVID-19 Tracker
The UBS Weekly National & State Hospital COVID-19 Tracker is built on data we've recently procured from the CDC that generally includes 40-100% of every hospital within each participating state. This dataset is updated each week with the participating number of providers increasing each week and is reported to the CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) COVID-19 module. The CDC uses statistical methods to aggregate, cleanse, smooth and report the data that can be found inside this report.
National hospital volumes are +14% above April 15-22 vs. 13% last week
Based on our analysis of the CDC data, the prior week 7 day average daily census (ADC) on June 2 is +14% above April 15-22. This compares to the 7 day average of +13% last week and 7 day average of +4% 1 month prior. In general, we find the slope of the curve to be flattening slightly but still tilted positively.
