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 (11/16), in Virginia we’re at 204,637 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), 13,552 hospitalizations and 3,806 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 2,677 (+1.3%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,161 (+0.6%). [Note from VDH: “The 2,677 case count reported on Monday, November 16 is due to a catch-up from the VDH data system being down for upgrades for a few hours over the weekend”] As for hospitalizations, they went up 48 (+0.4%), which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 24 (+0.2%). Deaths are reported +6 compared to +1 the previous day. The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 3,180,853 TOTAL test results (up 18,395 from yesterday; note that, according to researchers at Harvard, we need 21,145 test results/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression).
