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 (8/27), in Virginia we’re at 116,579 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), 9,391 hospitalizations and 2,527 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,121 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 823 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,642,867 (up 19,459 from 1,623,408 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 65 (+0.7%), from 9,326 to 9,391, which is a the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 67 (+0.7%). Deaths are reported up 12 (from 2,515 to 2,527), compared up 21 (from 2,494 to 2,515) the previous day.
