The numbers are encouraging.

Tampa COVID have hospitalizations have decreased.

Tampa hospitals are reporting a slight decrease in COVID-19 hospitalizations over the last month.

To be clear, the amount of patients presenting with COVID remains high, but according to WFLA, the number of those patients who require a hospital stay is falling slightly. The trend carries across all area hospitals, even the state.

Doctors are optimistic about the coming weeks, but say the mu variant and the upcoming flu season could cause a jump in the numbers. Sources say the decrease may be due to more people getting vaccinated, monoclonal treatments and mask wearing.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
