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 (6/16), in Virginia we’re at 55,331 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), 5,643 hospitalizations and 1,570 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 445 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 380 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 536,989 (up 6,557 from 530,432 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 483,024 (up 6,451 from 476,573 yesterday). These testing numbers are below 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 55 (+1.0%), from 5,588 to 5,643, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 52 (+0.9%). Deaths are reported up 18 (from 1,552 to 1,570), compared to an increase of 6 (from 1,546 to 1,552) the previous day.
