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 (6/20), in Virginia we’re at 57,433 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), 5,807 hospitalizations and 1,607 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 640 (+1.1%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 555 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was 588,652 (up 21,490 from 567,162 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 528,914 (up 19,584 from 509,330 yesterday). These testing numbers are well above 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), and also above 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 10 (+0.2%), from 5,797 to 5,807, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 53 (+0.9%), and the slowest rate of increase since the pandemic began. Deaths are reported up 5 (from 1,602 to 1,607), compared to an increase of 16 (from 1,586 to 1,602) the previous day.
