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 (6/21), in Virginia we’re at 57,994 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), 5,840 hospitalizations and 1,611 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 561 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 640 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was 603,916 (up 15,264 from 588,652 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 543,186 (up 14,272 from 528,914 yesterday). These testing numbers are above 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), but still a bit 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 33 (0.6%), from 5,807 to 5,840, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 10 (+0.2%). Deaths are reported up 4 (from 1,607 to 1,611), compared to an increase of 5 (from 1,602 to 1,607) the previous day.
