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 (9/2), in Virginia we’re at 122,542 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), 9,678 hospitalizations and 2,641 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 927 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,021 (+0.8%). The number of PCR test results was 1,605,290 (up 11,922 from 1,593,368 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 57 (+0.6%), from 9,621 to 9,678, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 52 (+0.5%).  Deaths are reported up 29 (from 2,612 to 2,641), compared up 32 (from 2,580 to 2,612) the previous day.
