And Then There Were None: St. John Detroit Reports Zero COVID-19 Patients, a Pandemic First

The numbers at one Detroit hospital were a barometer: cases peaked at 75% of beds, now down to zero

And then there were none: St. John Ascension Detroit Hospital has been a bellwether for COVID-19 activity throughout the pandemic, hitting a peak of 295 patients on April 6, 2020, and a 2021 peak of 101. But, this morning, for the first time, there were zero cases at the hospital. Photo of local Catholics praying in front of the hospital by Joseph Serwach.

DETROIT — St. John Ascension Detroit Hospital Tuesday reported a first for the pandemic: zero COVID-19 patients, a first since the outbreak began.
