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 (10/15) in Virginia we’re at 902,938 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), 37,767 hospitalizations and 13,391 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases was +2,357 (+0.26%) since Thursday morning’s stats, compared to +2,603 (+0.29%) in Thursday morning’s stats [NOTE: VDH isn’t publicly updating its stats on the weekends anymore, for whatever reasons…frustrating for keeping an accurate count of the statistics, for creating graphics that make sense, and also premature given that the pandemic most certainly isn’t over!]. As for hospitalizations, they went up 72 (+0.19%) since Thursday morning’s stats, compared to 82 (+0.22%) in Thursday morning’s stats. Deaths are reported +46 since Thursday morning’s stats, compared to +60 in Thursday morning’s stats. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 9,643,750 (up 28,727 since Thursday morning’s stats).
P.S. No sign of any new VHHA numbers as of 9:10 am.
