UAMS officially reaches zero patients for active COVID cases

UAMS Chancellor Dr. Cam Patterson announced on Wednesday that the hospital officially reached zero active COVID patients.

During the peak of the omicron variant, Dr. Patterson said that the hospital saw 100 patients due to the virus.

The announcement comes after the record breaking omicron surge that hit not only Arkansas, but the entire country.

The coronavirus in all variants continued to pose big problems for countless people in the state, as Arkansas officially surpassed more than 10,000 deaths as a result of the virus on Feb. 12, 2022.

The state has also seen a decrease in those getting vaccinated, but saw record breaking numbers in doses given over the past few months. As of today, more than 1.57 million Arkansans have been fully vaccinated against the virus.
