BRISTOL -- Bristol Hospital is now treating five patients who have or may have coronavirus, as the state saw another increase in virus-related hospitalizations -- albeit a slight one.

The hospital on Thursday reported treating an additional patient under investigation for possibly having the virus, which now leaves it with two PUIs.

Additionally, Bristol Hospital has three patients who have tested positive covid-19.

State officials on Thursday reported another increase in coronavirus hospitalizations. They have been on the rise since Friday, though the increase reported Thursday was only three patients. That leaves Connecticut with 191 people in the hospital with coronavirus.
