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 (12/26), in Virginia we’re at 329,577 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), 17,464 hospitalizations and 4,840 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,584 (+0.5%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 4,078 (+1.3%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 14 (+0.1%), which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 61 (+0.4%). Deaths are reported +20, compared to +29 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 4,128,799 (up 58,799 from two days ago…VDH didn’t update these numbers yesterday for whatever reason).
