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 (8/21), in Virginia we’re at 110,860 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), 9,071 hospitalizations and 2,436 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 978 (+0.9%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 863 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,555,751 (up 19,820 from 1,535,931 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 73 (+0.8%), from 8,998 to 9,071, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 73 (+0.8%).  Deaths are reported up 9 (from 2,427 to 2,436), compared up 17 (from 2,410 to 2,427) the previous day.
