New Virginia Data (3/27) on COVID-19 Finds +144 Cases (to 604), +18 Hospitalizations (to 83), +1 Death (to 14) From Yesterday


See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (3/27), we’re at 604 total reported cases, 83 hospitalizations and 14 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 144 (+31%) in the latest statistics, which is a significantly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 69 (+18%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 18 (+28%), from 65 to 83, which is also a faster rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 6, or +10%). Deaths went up 1 (from 13 to 14), compared to an increase of 4 (from 9 to 13) the previous day. So overall, not great numbers today, 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.
