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 (8/1), in Virginia we’re at 90,801 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), 7,910 hospitalizations and 2,215 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 913 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 984 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,229,025 (up 17,403 from 1,211,622 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 44 (+0.6%), from 7,866 to 7,910, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 80 (+1.0%).  Deaths are reported up 41 (from 2,174 to 2,215), compared to an increase of 33 (from 2,141 to 2,174) the previous day – and the highest number of new deaths since May 28.
