Monday (3/30) Virginia Data on COVID-19 Finds +130 Cases (to 1,020), +24 Hospitalizations (to 136), +3 Deaths (to 25) From Yesterday


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.

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
