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 (8/23), in Virginia we’re at 112,966 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), 9,176 hospitalizations and 2,467 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 894 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,212 (+1.1%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,586,024 (up 13,042 from 1,572,982 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 37 (+0.4%), from 9,139 to 9,176, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 68 (+0.7%).  Deaths are reported up 24 (from 2,443 to 2,467), compared up 7 (from 2,436 to 2,443) the previous day.
