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 (5/1), in Virginia we’re at 660,553 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), 28,486 hospitalizations and 10,777 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went to 963 (+0.2%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,249 (+0.2%)…and also the lowest 10-day new COVID cases since 10/28/20. As for hospitalizations, they went up 43 (+0.2%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 92 (+0.3%).  Deaths are reported +7 compared to +19 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 7,051,140 (up 17,182 from yesterday).

P.S. According to VHHA data, COVID-related hospitalizations are now at their lowest point since last October 4.
