How many people are in intensive care (ICU) due to COVID-19 at a given time?

This chart shows the total number of patients in intensive care units (ICU) due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) on a given date. Note that this is distinct from the weekly new number of people admitted to ICU due to COVID-19. You find this metric in the next section.

A quick reminders on what data is available for ICU admissions

Unlike confirmed cases and deaths, hospitalization data is only available for a select number of European countries and the United States from these sources.

Also, so syndicated data that is shared via creative commons was originally published in Europe, which of course have different spelling rules than U.S. spelling. Additionally, even though articles are posted and edited for spelling, some spelling could have been overlooked within the Articles written. With that said, I thank you for commenting and returning!
