Covid Hospitalizations Up In Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The number of people hospitalized because of the coronavirus is at a new high in Wyoming amid a fall surge in infections. Forty-seven people were hospitalized with the COVID-19 illness Wednesday. That’s up from 24 a week ago, which at the time was the most since hospitalizations peaked at 23 in April. The 47 patients are at 14 hospitals around the state. Wyoming health officials say they are not worried about COVID-19 patients overwhelming any specific hospital. But they do worry about the small intensive-care capacity of most Wyoming hospitals. Wyoming Medical Center in Casper has the most COVID-19 patients, 12, followed by Sheridan Memorial Hospital with five.
