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 (8/13), in Virginia we’re at 103,622 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), 8,592 hospitalizations and 2,363 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,101 (+1.1%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 776 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,414,449 (up 19,626 from 1,394,823 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 60 (+0.7%), from 8,532 to 8,592, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 74 (+0.9%). Deaths are reported up 11 (from 2,352 to 2,363), compared to an increase of 8 (from 2,344 to 2,352) the previous day.
