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 (7/3), in Virginia we’re at 64,393 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), 6,382 hospitalizations and 1,845 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 658 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 532 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 760,029 (up 15,549 from 744,480 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 49 (+0.8%), from 6,333 to 6,382, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 71 (+1.1%). Deaths are reported up 29 (from 1,816 to 1,845), compared to an increase of 30 (from 1,786 to 1,816) the previous day.
