For the first time, New York released data on Friday (Jan. 7) differentiating between those hospitalized with COVID-19 and those there for other reasons who happened to test positive for SARS-CoV-2 after being admitted.

While there are 11,548 New Yorkers hospitalized who have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, only 6,620 were admitted as a result of COVID-19. That means 43% of those counted were hospitalized for reasons unrelated to COVID-19.

In New York City, 51% of those considered to be hospitalized with COVID-19 were actually admitted for other reasons.

The CDC does not presently make any such distinction, and reports a 41.1% increase in its seven-day average of COVID-19 hospitalizations for all fifty states.
