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 (8/26), in Virginia we’re at 115,458 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), 9,326 hospitalizations and 2,515 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 823 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,005 (+0.9%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,623,408 (up 7,716 from 1,615,692 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 (+0.7%), from 9,259 to 9,326, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 52 (+0.6%).  Deaths are reported up 21 (from 2,494 to 2,515), compared up 23 (from 2,471 to 2,494) the previous day.
