Nebraska to report more virus stats

COVID-19 Cell.

Gov. Pete Ricketts is resurrecting a version of Nebraska’s daily virus reporting dashboard website.

The state eliminated its daily virus dashboard in June at the same time the last of Ricketts’ emergency orders related to the pandemic were allowed to expire.

Even though the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 remains well below last fall’s peak of 987, hospital capacity has been a concern in recent weeks because hospitals are so busy with non-COVID cases.

Over the past week, the number of people hospitalized with the virus accounted for roughly 15% of the state’s available hospital beds.
