Virginia coronavirus cases: 3,333 as of Tuesday, a nearly 16% increase in 24 hours
63 deaths recorded, up 9 from Monday
1:45 p.m. update: Four more deaths have been reported at Canterbury Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Henrico County, bringing the total number of COVID-19 fatalities to 32. Forty-nine residents are receiving care for symptoms on-site and at area hospitals, according to the center, and 84 residents and 25 staff members have tested positive, although not all are showing symptoms.
The number of COVID-19 cases in Virginia has jumped 15.8% in the past 24 hours to 3,333, according to the Virginia Department of Health’s Tuesday 9 a.m. update. On Monday, the department reported 2,878 cases.
The number of deaths is now 63, and 563 people are hospitalized with the virus in Tuesday’s data. The number of people tested is now 28,645.
On the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association’s COVID-19 dashboard, there are 1,183 people hospitalized across the state, including 589 who have tested positive for the virus and 594 whose tests are pending. VHHA updates the information daily at 9 a.m., and these statistics are current as of Tuesday.
The VHHA’s number of hospitalized, confirmed positive people is slightly different from VDH’s because the association’s data is based on figures supplied by hospitals and health systems in Virginia, and it does not filter out non-Virginia residents. VDH reports only Virginia residents with COVID-19 who were hospitalized when public health officials tested them, and does not include those who were hospitalized later.
Of the 1,183 total, 408 people are in ICU beds and 283 are on ventilators. Currently, 27% of Virginia hospitals’ ventilators are in use, both for COVID-19 cases and for other patients, according to 110 hospitals and 27 health systems that reported to VHHA.
