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 (7/4), in Virginia we’re at 65,109 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), 6,405 hospitalizations and 1,849 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 716 (+1.1%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 658 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was (up 12,526 from 772,555 yesterday), which is still 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 23 (+0.4%), from 6,382 to 6,405, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 49 (+0.8%). Deaths are reported up 4 (from 1,845 to 1,849), compared to an increase of 29 (from 1,816 to 1,845) the previous day.
