From Inside Nova -

The rate of new cases of COVID-19 in Northern Virginia is at its lowest level since April 30.

Northern Virginia added 295 new cases of COVID-19 and six new deaths in the latest daily report.

There are now 453 patients treated for COVID-19 in Northern Virginia hospitals, the lowest number since the Virginia Department of Health began releasing data April 14.

Statewide, there were 676 new cases of the coronavirus and eight new deaths reported Friday.

Statewide Hospital Data

Hospitalizations: 1,205 (down from 1,266 the previous day and lowest since April 7)

Peak Hospitalizations: 1,625 reached May 8

Patients in ICU: 320 (down from 321 the previous day)

Patients Discharged: 6,392 total

Data from the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association on Thursday showed the number of COVID-19 patients statewide on ventilators is at 161, the lowest number since the hospital association began releasing COVID-19 data April 6.

161 on vents of the 1205 in beds tells me that they're admitting more patients than is absolutely necessary. Which is good news. There's capacity to do so.

I have come to realize that if a subject is not featured on MSNBC, CNN or Foxnews the posts just disappear.

I guess people need to be told what to think and comment about.

Covid-19 will only become a problem again on LTM when it is featured on a morning show.

SD--that is sad as there are real people and families, like mine that are dealing with the aftermath of losing someone due to this virus.

It is sad. If you look at the LTM - LOUDOUN COUNTY OBITUARIES you will read about 4 people that have passed away from Covid-19. Two of them were located at Heritage Hall in Leesburg.

I am very glad that nobody died from COVID-19 today. [smile]

I suggest the same for everyone protesting in Loudoun and D.C. I don't want you getting me sick.

Over the weekend, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) told her city’s protesters that they should get tested for the coronavirus as soon as possible.

The Minnesota Department of Health updated its testing guidance Tuesday, adding that groups at high priority for getting a test include “people who have participated in any large gatherings, including but not limited to protests, community clean up and recovery efforts, vigils, [and] neighborhood defense meetings.” The guidance said such people should get tested regardless of whether they have symptoms of the coronavirus.
