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 (8/19), in Virginia we’re at 109,019 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), 8,925 hospitalizations and 2,410 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 737 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 861 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,519,236 (up 17,192 from 1,502,044 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 76 (+0.9%), from 8,849 to 8,925, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 82 (+0.9%).  Deaths are reported up 14 (from 2,396 to 2,410), compared up 11 (from 2,385 to 2,396) the previous day.
