Alabama hospitalizations related to COVID-19 have increades 20 percent in less than two weeks.

Statistics from the Alabama Department of Public Health show that 362 people were hospitalized for the virus on Monday, up from 301 patients just 10 days earlier.

Officials said they are monitoring the spike but don't think it signifies a trend since more people are getting vaccinated and younger patients tend to recover.
