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 (7/30), in Virginia we’re at 88,904 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), 7,786 hospitalizations and 2,141 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 911 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 999 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,195,101 (up 19,287 from 1,175,814 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 48 (+0.6%), from 7,738 to 7,786, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 52 (+0.7%). Also note that the VHHA hospitalizations number (1,357) reached its highest level since early June. Deaths are reported up 16 (from 2,125 to 2,141), compared to an increase of 30 (from 2,095 to 2,125) the previous day.
