Updated: a day ago



Updates to this information will cease moving forward


Researchers have concluded the metric of positive cases of COVID-19 detected in a hospital setting is an out-of-date model for tracking the disease burden.


Recommended NEW COVID-19 Metrics


The researchers report their study found widespread vaccinations and possibly naturally acquired immunity have reduced the seriousness of COVID-19 in many circumstances.


Symptoms are often very mild or even asymptomatic.


To update the modeling, researchers recommend that SEVERITY should be included in reporting.

"the proportion of hospitalizations that are due to severe COVID-19 has changed with vaccine availability, thus, increasing proportions of mild and asymptomatic cases are included in hospitalization reporting metrics. The addition of simple measures of disease severity to the case definition of a SARS-CoV-2 hospitalization is a straightforward and objective change that should improve the value of the metric for tracking SARS-CoV-2 disease burden.
