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 (7/8), in Virginia we’re at 67,375 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), 6,577 hospitalizations and 1,905 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 635 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 638 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was 812,362 (up 10,180 from 802,182 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 65 (+1.0%), from 6,512 to 6,577, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 77 (+1.2%). Deaths are reported up 24 (from 1,881 to 1,905), compared to an increase of 28 (from 1,853 to 1,881) the previous day.
