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 (7/7), in Virginia we’re at 66,740 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), 6,512 hospitalizations and 1,881 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 638 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 354 (+0.5%). The number of TOTAL test results was 802,182 (up 13,317 from 788,865 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 77 (+1.2%), from 6,435 to 6,512, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 17 (+0.3%). Deaths are reported up 28 (from 1,853 to 1,881), compared to an increase of ZERO (holding at 1,853) the previous day.
