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 (9/9), in Virginia we’re at 129,289 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), 10,008 hospitalizations and 2,697 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 882 (0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 836 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 1,827,862 (up 10,515 from 1,817,347 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 76 (+0.8%), from 9,932 to 10,008, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 30 (+0.3%). Deaths are reported up 11 (from 2,686 to 2,697), compared up 2 (from 2,684 to 2,686) the previous day.
