The majority of UC Health COVID patients are hospitalized for other causes

DENVER (KDVR) – Most of the patients in Colorado’s largest hospital system who tested positive for COVID 19 were hospitalized for reasons other than COVID-producing medical problems. .

In a tweet, One UCHealth said “one-third of our 362 COVID-positive patients were hospitalized for COVID complications, while two-thirds tested positive on admission for other reasons.”

The UCHealth system is the largest system in the state. It accounts for about 20% of the state’s hospital patients who test positive for COVID. Statewide, there are 1,559 COVID-positive patients in Colorado.

These numbers are reverse statewide numbers provided to KDVR on January 11. State epidemiologist Dr Rachel Herlihy told FOX31 that two-thirds of the state’s COVID-positive patients have been hospitalized due to COVID problems.

“Historically, throughout the pandemic, we have seen about 80-90% of people hospitalized with COVID-19, their hospitalization due to COVID-19,” said Herlihy. “But that number seems to be a bit lower now. About 65% right now. ”
