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 (7/20), in Virginia we’re at 78,375 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), 7,201 hospitalizations and 2,031 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 945 (+1.2%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,057 (+1.4%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,011,742 (up 13,450 from 998,292 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 36 (+0.5%), from 7,165 to 7,201, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 18 (+0.3%). Deaths are reported up 4 (from 2,027 to 2,031, compared to an increase of 2 (from 2,025 to 2,027) the previous day.
