How to track ICU bed availability in Tampa Bay

Here's where you can see ICU availability and how many beds are taken by COVID-19-related patients.

FLORIDA, USA — Coronavirus cases continue to climb in Florida, but what about hospitalizations?

Tracking hospitalizations got easier on July 10 when the Agency for Health Care Administration began publishing a spreadsheet with the number of people currently checked-in for coronavirus-related complications in Florida. The data only includes people whose "primary diagnosis" was COVID-19. 

Here's what the AHCA spreadsheet tracks:

  • Hospital beds by county
  • Hospital beds by hospital
  • ICU beds by county
  • ICU beds by hospital
  • COVID-19 hospitalizations by county

As of 10:35 a.m. July 27, 9,095 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 as their primary diagnosis statewide, and 1,779 of them were in the Tampa Bay area. Those numbers are frequently updated, and you can click here for the most recent data, which is also broken down by county.
