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 (7/20) in Virginia we’re at 686,206 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), 31,019 hospitalizations and 11,487 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases was +721 (+0.11%) in the latest statistics, compared to +986 on Saturday/Sunday, and apparently the highest one-day total since May 8. [NOTE: VDH isn’t updating on the weekends anymore, for whatever reasons…frustrating for keeping an accurate count of the statistics, and also premature given that the pandemic isn’t over!] As for hospitalizations, they went up 42 (+0.14%) compared to +41 on Saturday/Sunday. Deaths are reported +4 compared to +6 over the weekend. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 7,863,072 (up 9,633 from yesterday).
P.S. No sign of any new VHHA hospitalization numbers as of 9:08 am.
