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 (9/6), in Virginia we’re at 126,926 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), 9,881 hospitalizations and 2,678 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,199 (1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 948 (+0.8%). The number of PCR test results was 1,664,475 (up 12,455 from 1,652,020 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 32 (+0.3%), from 9,849 to 9,881, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 51 (+0.5%).  Deaths are reported up 1 (from 2,677 to 2,678), compared up 15 (from 2,662 to 2,677) the previous day.
