The Virginia Department of Health released their daily updated numbers involving coronavirus cases within the state.

Gov. Northam said based on data, most of Virginia can enter Phase Two on Friday, June 5. Northern Virginia and Richmond will remain in Phase Once since they entered that phase later than the rest of Virginia.

There are 450 people currently receiving inpatient hospital care whose test results are pending. 336 confirmed positive patients, and those whose test results are pending, are currently hospitalized in the ICU.

186 hospital patients, both confirmed for coronavirus, and those with test results pending, are currently on a ventilator. 584 ventilators are being used in hospitals out of the 2,956 in the state - that's 20% usage.
