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 (9/25), in Virginia we’re at 144,433 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), 10,806 hospitalizations and 3,136 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 941 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 902 (+0.6%). The number of TOTAL test results was 2,119,729 (up 21,409 from 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 37 (+0.3%), which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 51 (+0.5%), and one of the slowest rates of growth so far during the pandemic. Deaths are reported +23, compared to +24 the previous day.
