Monday (4/6) Virginia Data on COVID-19 Finds +241 Cases (to 2,878), +66 Hospitalizations (to 497), +3 Deaths (to 54) From Yesterday

Slowest rate of growth in confirmed cases since before March 9.


See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (4/6), in Virginia we’re at 2,878 total reported cases, 497 hospitalizations and 54 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 241 (+9%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 230 (+10%), and also the slowest percentage growth rate since before March 9. As for hospitalizations, they went up 66 (+15%), from 431 to 497, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 41, or +11%). Deaths are reported up 3 (from 51 to 54), compared to a *decrease* of 1 (from 52 to 51) the previous day. Anyway…overall, these new numbers seem like encouraging news. Hopefully, this curve will continue to “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.
