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 (10/12), in Virginia we’re at 159,570 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), 11,553 hospitalizations and 3,361 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 854 (+0.5%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 811 (+0.5%). The number of TOTAL test results was 2,447,058 (up 15,523 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 34 (+0.3%), which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 18 (+0.2%). Deaths are reported +3, compared to +4 the previous day.
