Tool helps you track hospitals' capacity in Houston area

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The U.S. is seeing some of the highest COVID-19 case numbers to date as the fight against the virus continues.

When it comes to hospitalizations, we are still seeing a surge over the past month and a half and a half with more than 13,000 Texans in the hospital right now.

An interactive tool from the COVID-19 Tracking Project shows the number of beds per hospital, the percentage of beds filled by patients, and the percentage of beds filled by COVID-19 patients.

Over the weekend, we saw a new record at just 14,000. This comes in the wake of the holidays.

In area Q, which includes Harris, Montgomery and Fort Bend counties, there are only 74 available ICU beds in total with just over 1,500 general beds.

In the Houston-area alone, these are the capacities in hospitals.
