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 (9/28), in Virginia we’re at 147,516 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), 10,978 hospitalizations and 3,187 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 923 (+0.6%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 443 (+0.3%). The number of TOTAL test results was 2,189,096 (up 12,832 from yesterday), which is 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 62 (+0.6%), which is a higher of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 27 (+0.2%), and one of the slowest rates since the pandemic began. Deaths are reported +15, compared to +13 the previous day.
