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 (2/1), in Virginia we’re at 507,640 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), 21,444 hospitalizations and 6,474 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 2,861 (+0.6%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 2,558 (+0.5%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 35 (+0.2%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 72 (+0.3%).  Deaths are reported +10, compared to +15 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 5,261,801 (up 27,646 from yesterday).

P.S. According to a note by VDH, “Surveillance system upgrades occurring on Saturday, January 30, 2021, will affect the data on the COVID-19 Cases & Testing Dashboards on January 31 and February 1, 2021. A decrease in the number of cases and tests reported on January 31, and an increase in the number of cases and tests reported on February 1 is anticipated because of these upgrades.”
