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 (9/19), in Virginia we’re at 139,655 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), 10,562 hospitalizations and 2,990 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 953 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,242 (+0.9%). The number of TOTAL test results was 2,007,323 (up 37,352 from yesterday), which is ABOVE what we need, according to researchers at Harvard that would be 22,422/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression)…but note that these numbers have been fluctuating wildly, so not sure if we can really trust them. As for hospitalizations, they went up 42 (+0.4%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 55 (+0.5%).  Deaths are reported +41, compared to +29 the previous day (NOTE: VDH says, “Regarding the death data for Tuesday, September 15, 2020, there is an existing data backlog.  VDH is working diligently to identify COVID-19 related deaths using vital record death certificate information.”).
