Number of discharges remains larger than hospitalizations in Nassau
Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced some positive news on the rate of hospitalizations in the county.
As of Tuesday night, there were 2,369 COVID-19-related hospitalizations – an increase of 88 from the day before. However, as of last night 144 people were discharged.
For the third day in a row, Curran says the number of those discharged is larger than the number of new hospitalizatios.
"That is a very good sign, three days in a row. That indicates that we are approaching or are in a plateau," said Curran.
In addition, as of Tuesday, 449 patients were on ventilators – a decrease of 24 from the day before.
Curran announced that hospitals are reporting a shortage of hospital gowns, and they are in need.
Curran also says the New York Blood Center will be calling patients recovered from COVID-19 for plasma donations.
