Daily Hospital Update Replaced with Weekly Report During the Pandemic

The Missouri Hospital Association says it will stop issuing a daily report about the status of Missouri hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The daily report will be replaced by a weekly report released every Wednesday. The original daily report gave statistics about how many resources were available to hospitals statewide.

The switch from a daily to a weekly report comes as Missouri has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases. The state reported a daily record of 553 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, according to the state’s COVID-19 information hub. That report on new COVID cases will continue daily.
