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 (8/24), in Virginia we’re at 113,630 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), 9,207 hospitalizations and 2,471 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 664 (+0.6%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 894 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,599,596 (up 13,572 from 1,586,024 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 31 (+0.3%), from 9,176 to 9,207, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 37 (+0.4%). Deaths are reported up 4 (from 2,467 to 2,471), compared up 24 (from 2,443 to 2,467) the previous day.
