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 (8/3), in Virginia we’re at 93,106 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), 8,018 hospitalizations and 2,218 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,324 (+1.4%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 981 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,258,047 (up 15,692 from 1,242,355 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 63 (+0.8%), from 7,955 to 8,018, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 45 (+0.6%). Deaths are reported up ZERO (holding at 2,218), compared to an increase of 3 (from 2,215 to 2,218) the previous day.
