See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health. So, at this point (4/11), in Virginia we’re at 5,077 total reported cases, 837 hospitalizations and 130 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 568 (+13%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 467 (+12%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 65 (+8%), from 772 to 837, which is a slower rate of increase than the previous day (which was up 87, or +13%), and also the slowest rate of increase since March 20. Deaths are reported up 9 (from 121 to 130), compared to an increase of 12 (from 109 to 121) the previous day. So overall, somewhat encouraging, particularly on the slower rate of growth in hospitalizations. Hopefully, the curve will continue to “flatten out” in coming days/weeks if we keep up the social distancing and other measures. Also, of course, we need a LOT more testing capacity, PPE, etc.
