Latest data from the Virginia Department of Health: 135 new confirmed COVID-19 cases yesterday, bringing the total to 739. Another 16 hospitalizations, bringing the total to 99. And another three fatalities, bringing the total to 17.
Testing is ramping up in a major way — 1,929 tests yesterday, more than double the number from two days previously. A total of 9,166 tests have been administered in Virginia so far.
The VDH has begun publishing more detailed information. Of particular interest is this graph which shows the number of COVID-19 cases in Virginia by the day the illness began.
Then there’s this from the incomparable Cranky (known to lesser mortals as John Butcher):
What’s the message here? That COVID-19 confirmed cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all increasing at a similar exponential rate. We’re not talking about one variable randomly plucked from a cluster of variables. We’re talking about all three metrics.
