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 (8/4), in Virginia we’re at 94,251 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), 8,085 hospitalizations and 2,244 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,145 (+1.2%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,324 (+1.4%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,271,174 (up 13,127 from 1,258,047 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 8,018 to 8,085, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 63 (+0.8%).  Deaths are reported up 26 (from 2,218 to 2,244), compared to an increase of zero (from 2,218 to 2,218) the previous day.
