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 (6/23), in Virginia we’re at 58,994 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), 5,913 hospitalizations and 1,645 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 529 (+0.9%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 471 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 627,248 (up 10,441 from 616,807 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 565,835 (up 10,228 from 555,607 yesterday). These testing numbers are slightly above 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), but still 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 44 (+0.7%), from 5,869 to 5,913, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 29 (0.5%). Deaths are reported up 25 (from 1,620 to 1,645), compared to an increase of 9 (from 1,611 to 1,620) the previous day.
