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 (8/6), in Virginia we’re at 95,867 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), 8,183 hospitalizations and 2,299 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 818 (+0.9%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 798 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,299,257 (up 16,121 from 1,283,136 yesterday), which is still well 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 57 (+0.7%), from 8,126 to 8,183, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 41 (+0.5%).  Deaths are reported up 25 (from 2,274 to 2,299), compared to an increase of 30 (from 2,244 to 2,274) the previous day.
