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 (9/10), in Virginia we’re at 130,525 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), 10,085 hospitalizations and 2,708 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,236 (1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 882 (+0.7%), and the largest increase since August 8. The number of TOTAL test results was 1,844,727 (up 16,865 from 1,827,862 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 77 (+0.8%), from 10,008 to 10,085, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 76 (+0.8%). Deaths are reported up 11 (from 2,697 to 2,708), compared up 11 (from 2,686 to 2,697) the previous day.
