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 (7/24), in Virginia we’re at 82,364 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), 7,515 hospitalizations and 2,067 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,127 (+1.4%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 844 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,086,240 (up 19,655 from 1,066,585 yesterday), which is still 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 78 (+1.0%), from 7,437 to 7,515, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 86 (+1.2%).  Deaths are reported up 13 (from 2,054 to 2,067), compared to an increase of 3 (from 2,051 to 2,054) the previous day.
