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 (8/29), in Virginia we’re at 118,809 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), 9,512 hospitalizations and 2,568 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,217 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,013 (+0.9%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,678,614 (up 16,902 from 1,661,712 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 52 (+0.5%), from 9,460 to 9,512, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 69 (+0.7%).  Deaths are reported up 18 (from 2,550 to 2,568), compared up 23 (from 2,527 to 2,550) the previous day.
