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 (3/3), in Virginia we’re at 580,108 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), 24,354 hospitalizations and 9,326 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went to 1,549 (+0.3%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,385 (+0.2%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 96 (+0.4%), which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 100 (+0.4%).  Deaths are reported +383, compared to +160 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 5,946,972 (up 18,293 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”
