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 (7/22), in Virginia we’re at 80,393 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), 7,351 hospitalizations and 2,051 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,022 (+1.3%) in the latest statistics, which is the samer rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 996 (+1.3%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,047,021 (up 15,045 from 1,031,976 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 84 (+1.2%), from 7,267 to 7,351, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 66 (+0.9%).  Deaths are reported up 3 (from 2,048 to 2,051, compared to an increase of 17 (from 2,031 to 2,048) the previous day.
