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 (6/10), in Virginia we’re at 52,177 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), 5,272 hospitalizations and 1,514 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 439 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 487 (+1.0%); it’s also the slowest rate of increase since the pandemic began AND the lowest absolute increase in new cases since mid-April. The number of TOTAL test results was 443,486 (up 7,911 from 435,575 yesterday), while the number of “PCR Only” tests was 395,972 (up 7,492 from 388,480 yesterday). These testing numbers are well below 10,000 per day (a number Gov. Northam has repeatedly stated as an important goal), and also 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 69 (+1.3%), from 5,203 to 5,272, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 60 (+1.2%). Deaths are reported up 18 (from 1,496 to 1,514), compared to an increase of 19 (from 1,477 to 1,496) the previous day.
