See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association. So, at this point (5/30), in Virginia we’re at 43,611 total reported – confirmed plus probable – cases (note that actual cases, as well as deaths, could be higher, maybe even a LOT higher, based on stories like this one in the NY Times), 4,601 hospitalizations and 1,370 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,078 (+2.5%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,132 (+2.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 340,856 (up 8,526 from 332,330 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 303,430 (up 7,109 from 296,321 yesterday)…VDH now breaking this out, following The Atlantic article on Virginia’s statistics for testing. These testing numbers are below 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), and also lower than the 16,664 per day that Harvard’s Global Health Institute estimates we need to reopen safely and contain the virus. As for hospitalizations, they went up 72 (+1.6%), from 4,529 to 4,601, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 87 (+2.0%). Deaths are reported up 12 (from 1,358 to 1,370), compared to an increase of 20 (from 1,338 to 1,358) the previous day. So…the numbers are still going up, albeit at relatively slow rates.
