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 (7/1), in Virginia we’re at 63,203 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), 6,262 hospitalizations and 1,786 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 416 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 598 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was 726,152 (up 15,059 from 711,093 yesterday), which is 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 59 (+1.0%), from 6,203 to 6,262, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 39 (0.6%). Deaths are reported up 23 (from 1,763 to 1,786), compared to an increase of 23 (from 1,740 to 1,763) the previous day.
