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 (8/22), in Virginia we’re at 112,072 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), 9,139 hospitalizations and 2,443 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,212 (+1.1%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 978 (+0.9%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,572,982 (up 17,231 from 1,555,751 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 68 (+0.7%), from 9,071 to 9,139, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 73 (+0.8%).  Deaths are reported up 7 (from 2,436 to 2,443), compared up 9 (from 2,427 to 2,436) the previous day.
