Data is presented with a three-day lag to allow time for diagnosis to be reported.At the county level, a visit is counted by where the patient resides. A patient with multiple visits will be counted for each visit. Admissions may not be because of COVID-19 as the primary cause. Syndromic surveillance data is not the same source used by CDC to report COVID-19 hospital admissions data.CountyCase Rate/100,000% available ICU bedsCOVID-19 diagnosed hospital admissions
