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 (9/12), in Virginia we’re at 132,940 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), 10,218 hospitalizations and 2,722 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,300 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,115 (+0.9%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,879,908 (up 16,826 from yesterday), which is still well 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 63 (+0.6%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 70 (+0.7%).  Deaths are reported +11, compared to +3 the previous day.
