See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (3/30), in Virginia we’re at 1,020 total reported cases, 136 hospitalizations and 25 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 130 (+15%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 151 (+20%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 24 (+21%), from 112 to 136, which is a somewhat *faster* rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 13, or +13%). Deaths went up 3 (from 22 to 25), compared to an increase of 5 (from 17 to 22) the previous day. So overall, not great news, particularly on the number of deaths – although it *does* appear that the rates of growth in reported cases might be slowing – but hopefully this curve will really start flattening out in coming days if we keep up the social distancing and other measures. Also, of course, we need a LOT more testing capacity, PPE, etc.
