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 (6/2), in Virginia we’re at 46,239 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), 4,770 hospitalizations and 1,407 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 841 (+1.9%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 791 (+1.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 369,308 (up 6,774 from 362,534 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 328,889 (up 6,321 from 322,568 yesterday)…VDH now breaking this out, following The Atlantic article on Virginia’s statistics for testing. These testing numbers are below 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), and still far 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 76 (+1.6%), from 4,694 to 4,770, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 51 (+1.1%). Deaths are reported up 15 (from 1,392 to 1,407), compared to an increase of 17 (from 1,375 to 1,392) the previous day.
