Sunday (3/29) Virginia Data on COVID-19 Finds +151 Cases (to 890), +13 Hospitalizations (to 112), +5 Deaths (to 22) From Yesterday


See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (3/29), in Virginia we’re at 890 total reported cases, 112 hospitalizations and 22 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 151 (+20%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 135 (+22%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 13 (+13%), from 99 to 112, which is also a somewhat slower rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 16, or +19%). Deaths went up 5 (from 17 to 22), compared to an increase of 3 (from 14 to 17) the previous day. So overall, not great news, particularly on the number of deaths – although it *does* appear that the rates of growth in cases and hospitalizations 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.
