Saturday (6/6) Virginia Data on COVID-19 Finds +865 Confirmed/Probable Cases (to 49,397), +46 Hospitalizations (to 5,054), +7 Deaths (to 1,460 From Yesterday)


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 (6/6), in Virginia we’re at 49,397 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), 5,054 hospitalizations and 1,460 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 865 (+1.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 676 (+1.4%). The number of TOTAL test results was 414,383 (up 8,525 from 405,858 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 368,857 (up 7,338 from 361,519 yesterday). These testing numbers are below 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), and still 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 46 (+0.9%), from 5,008 to 5,054, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 51 (+1.0%). Deaths are reported up 7 (from 1,453 to 1,460), compared to an increase of 8 (from 1,445 to 1,453) the previous day.
