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 (10/16), in Virginia we’re at 164,124 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), 11,780 hospitalizations and 3,408 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,183 (+0.7%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,331 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 2,528,225 TOTAL test results (up 21,926 from yesterday; note that, according to researchers at Harvard, we need 22,422 test results/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression). As for hospitalizations, they went up 76 (+0.65%), which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 76 (+0.65%). Deaths are reported +20 compared to +7 the previous day.
