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 (7/17), in Virginia we’re at 75,433 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), 7,087 hospitalizations and 2,013 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,002 (+1.3%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 904 (+1.2%). The number of TOTAL test results was 964,222 (up 17,605 from 946,617 yesterday), which is still well 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 67 (+1.0%), from 7,020 to 7,087, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 115 (+1.7%).  Deaths are reported up 6 (from 2,007 to 2,013), compared to an increase of 15 (from 1,992 to 2,007) the previous day.
