Saturday (3/28) Virginia Data on COVID-19 Finds +135 Cases (to 739), +16 Hospitalizations (to 99), +3 Deaths (to 17) From Yesterday


See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (3/28), we’re at 739 total reported cases, 99 hospitalizations and 17 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 135 (+22%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 144 (+31%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 16 (+19%), from 83 to 99, which is also a somewhat slower rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 18, or +28%). Deaths went up 3 (from 14 to 17), compared to an increase of 1 (from 13 to 14) the previous day. So overall, not great news, 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.
