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 (9/3), in Virginia we’re at 123,668 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), 9,741 hospitalizations and 2,652 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,126 (+0.9%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 927 (+0.8%). The number of PCR test results was 1,619,053 (up 13,763 from 1,605,290 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 (+0.7%), from 9,678 to 9,741, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 57 (+0.6%). Deaths are reported up 11 (from 2,641 to 2,652), compared up 20 (from 2,612 to 2,641) the previous day.
