Daily Status, Sept. 5
Daily Status, Sept. 5:
Over the last several weeks, we have seen a trend where the more rural parts of the state, with a few isolated large colleges have been trending poorly compared the more urban setting (even if those with colleges). For example, Hampton Roads and NOVA have not seen impacts with the colleges reopening whereas SW & NW are being swamped. In particular, the New River area is showing 0.7% of the population positive in the last 10 days or so. This is 100% the result of the annual migration of college students to Blacksburg and Radford.
The three week growth rates are (in fraction per day)
NOVA: 1.001 -- GMU
Central VA: 1.011 -- UVA & VCU
Hampton Roads/Eastern VA: 0.980 -- W&M, CNU & ODU
SW VA: 1.025 -- VT & Radford
NW VA: 1.021-- JMU
The state as a whole is is increasing at 1.011.
The following charts are for the 5 regions/trends. Again, SW VA, even with the lower population, has more cases than any other region.
