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 (8/11), in Virginia we’re at 101,745 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), 8,458 hospitalizations and 2,344 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 996 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 663 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,378,458 (up 10,063 from 1,368,395 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 67 (+0.8%), from 8,391 to 8,458, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 22 (+0.3%).  Deaths are reported up 17 (from 2,327 to 2,344), compared to an increase of 1 (from 2,326 to 2,327) the previous day.
