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 (7/2), in Virginia we’re at 63,735 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), 6,333 hospitalizations and 1,816 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 532 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 416 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 744,480 (up 18,328 from 726,152 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 71 (+1.1%), from 6,262 to 6,333, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 59 (1.0%). Deaths are reported up 30 (from 1,786 to 1,816), compared to an increase of 23 (from 1,763 to 1,786) the previous day.
