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 (2/23), in Virginia we’re at 567,039 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), 23,698 hospitalizations and 7,658 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,769 (+0.3%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,155 (+0.2%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 168 (+0.7%), which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 49 (+0.2%).  Deaths are reported +172, compared to +155 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 5,778,994 (up 16,605 from yesterday).

P.S. Also note, as VDH writes, “VDH is now processing 2021 death certificates related to the post-holiday surge of COVID-19 cases. As a result, a larger number of deaths is expected to be added by report date.”
