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 (6/19), in Virginia we’re at 56,793 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), 5,797 hospitalizations and 1,602 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 555 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 463 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 567,162 (up 11,700 from 555,462 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 509,330 (up 9,731 from 499,599 yesterday). These testing numbers are above 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), and still far below 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 53 (+0.9%), from 5,744 to 5,797, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 52 (+0.9%). Deaths are reported up 16 (from 1,586 to 1,602), compared to an increase of 3 (from 1,583 to 1,586) the previous day.
