Huntsville Hospital CEO David Spillers said as of Monday there are 115 inpatients with coronavirus in the hospital system.

This includes a 16-year-old patient with coronavirus in the ICU. Spillers said this is the first teen and youngest patient with coronavirus on a ventilator in the ICU.

No other details about the patient were revealed Monday.

Spillers said on June 1, there were 28 inpatients with coronavirus in the system.

Right now, there are 44 inpatients with coronavirus in Madison County. That includes 38 in Huntsville Hospital's main campus, six in Madison Hospital and two in Crestwood Medical Center.

There are 16 patients in the Intensive Care Units, and 11 of the inpatients with coronavirus in Madison County are on ventilators.

Decatur Morgan Hospital has 20 inpatients with coronavirus, and Marshall County has 30.

There are 12 inpatients with coronavirus at Helen Keller Hospital. Athens Limestone Hospital has nine inpatients with coronavirus, which Spillers said is the most since the reporting started.

Spillers said the average age of admission for patients with coronavirus is in the mid-50s. He said the large majority of patients hospitalized have a pre-existing condition.

Spillers said there is a higher percentage of people testing positive, at about 6% locally and 10% statewide. He said almost 2,000 people were tested for coronavirus in Madison County last week. He said very few people without symptoms being tested are getting positive results back.

Spillers said people should expect to see substantial increases in the amount of cases in the state over the next couple of days.

The Huntsville Hospital system has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment and ventilators, but ICU beds can be tight depending on the facility, Spillers said. He said testing is limited and they would prefer to do more of it. He said nationally, the weak link in his opinion is testing.
