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 (3/4), in Virginia we’re at 581,408 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), 24,414 hospitalizations and 9,357 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went to 1,300 (+0.2%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,549 (+0.3%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 60 (+0.3%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 96 (+0.4%).  Deaths are reported +31, compared to +383 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 5,972,272 (up 25,300 from yesterday).

P.S. VDH notes, “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”

P.P.S. No sign of VHHA new numbers as of 9 am.
