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 (9/5), in Virginia we’re at 125,727 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), 9,849 hospitalizations and 2,677 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 948 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,111 (+0.9%). The number of PCR test results was 1,652,020 (up 17,712 from 1,634,308 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 51 (+0.5%), from 9,798 to 9,849, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 57 (+0.6%).  Deaths are reported up 15 (from 2,662 to 2,677), compared up 10 (from 2,652 to 2,662) the previous day.
