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 (7/5), in Virginia we’re at 65,748 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), 6,418 hospitalizations and 1,853 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 639 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 716 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was (up 10,429 from 782,984 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 13 (+0.2%), from 6,405 to 6,418, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 23 (+0.4%), and tied for the lowest growth rate since the pandemic began. Deaths are reported up 4 (from 1,849 to 1,853), compared to an increase of 29 (from 1,845 to 1,849) the previous day.
