The United States reported a new record high for Covid-19 hospitalizations on Tuesday. Data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services showed that the seven-day average of hospitalizations in the U.S. reached 140,576, the highest since the start of the pandemic.

The majority of the cases are believed to be the Omicron variant, the highly transmissible Covid variant that was first discovered in November 2021 and has since taken over new infections in the US. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 98% of Covid cases are Omicron.

Although many experts say that the Omicron variant is significantly mild than previous variants, doctors believe that the sheer amount of cases caused by the variant has led to an unprecedented amount of hospitalizations.
