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 (8/10), in Virginia we’re at 100,749 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), 8,391 hospitalizations and 2,327 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 663 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 897 (+0.9%), and the slowest rate of increase since July 6. The number of TOTAL test results was 1,368,395 (up 17,909 from 1,350,486 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 22 (+0.3%), from 8,369 to 8,391, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 37 (+0.4%), and the slowest rate of increase since July 19.  Deaths are reported up 1 (from 2,326 to 2,327), compared to an increase of 4 (from 2,322 to 2,326) the previous day.
