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 (7/11), in Virginia we’re at 69,782 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), 6,707 hospitalizations and 1,962 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 851 (+1.2%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 943 (+1.4%). The number of TOTAL test results was 866,257 (up 19,345 from 846,912 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 32 (+0.5%), from 6,675 to 6,707, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 50 (+0.8%). Deaths are reported up 4 (from 1,958 to 1,962), compared to an increase of 21 (from 1,937 to 1,958) the previous day.
