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 (8/30), in Virginia we’re at 119,747 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), 9,555 hospitalizations and 2,569 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 938 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,217 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,692,025 (up 13,411 from 1,678,614 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 43 (+0.5%), from 9,512 to 9,555, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 52 (+0.5%). Deaths are reported up 1 (from 2,568 to 2,569), compared up 18 (from 2,550 to 2,568) the previous day.
