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 (8/12), in Virginia we’re at 102,521 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), 8,532 hospitalizations and 2,352 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 776 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 996 (+1.0%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,394,823 (up 16,365 from 1,378,458 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 74 (+0.9%), from 8,458 to 8,532, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 67 (+0.8%). Deaths are reported up 8 (from 2,344 to 2,352), compared to an increase of 17 (from 2,327 to 2,344) the previous day.
