See below for graphics of the newly posted COVID-19 numbers by the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association. So, at this point (6/30), in Virginia we’re at 62,787 total reported – confirmed plus probable – cases (note that actual cases, as well as deaths, could be higher, maybe even a LOT higher, based on stories like this one in the NY Times), 6,203 hospitalizations and 1,763 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 598 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 453 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 711,093 (up 8,983 from 702,110 yesterday), which is FAR below what we need, according to researchers at Harvard (that would be 22,422/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression).  As for hospitalizations, they went up 39 (+0.6%), from 6,164 to 6,203, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 28 (0.5%). Deaths are reported up 23 (from 1,740 to 1,763), compared to an increase of 8 (from 1,732 to 1,740) the previous day.
