Hopefully Alabama follows Arizona's pattern. They stayed near their peak for hospitalizations for about 8 days before starting to see a steady drop. They've gone from 3466 COVID inpatients on July 16th to 1879 inpatients as of yesterday.
Alabama has been near its peak for over a week now. Steady between 1550-1600 inpatients (they keep updating the numbers, so my previous values a couple posts up are no longer valid). Hopefully we start seeing that same steady decline soon.
