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 (9/30), in Virginia we’re at 148,271 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), 11,041 hospitalizations and 3,208 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 755 (+0.5%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 923 (+0.6%). The number of TOTAL test results was 2,200,124 (up 11,028 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 63 (+0.6%), which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 62 (+0.6%). Deaths are reported +21, compared to +15 the previous day.
