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 (8/14), in Virginia we’re at 104,838 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), 8,650 hospitalizations and 2,370 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,216 (+1.2%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,101 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,429,216 (up 14,767 from 1,414,449 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 58 (+0.7%), from 8,592 to 8,650, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 60 (+0.7%).  Deaths are reported up 7 (from 2,363 to 2,370), compared to an increase of 11 (from 2,352 to 2,363) the previous day.
