MCHD: Numbers of people hospitalized in Alabama won’t be shared with public

Coronavirus

MOBILE, Ala (WKRG) — The Mobile County Health Department said that information on the number of hospitalized patients was on a “need to know” basis and is only being shared with certain people and individuals.

“Hospitals are uploading that information three times daily to the Alabama Instant Notification System,” said Dr. Rendi Murphree, MCHD Epidemiologist. ‘These numbers include all their bed types including negative pressure rooms and ventilators.”

That includes not only Mobile County but the entire state.

Mobile County has 18 cases of covid-19.
