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 (10/3), in Virginia we’re at 150,803 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), 11,191 hospitalizations and 3,270 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,116 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 966 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results was 2,267,407 (up 20,484 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 51 (+0.5%), which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 48 (+0.4%). Deaths are reported +20, compared to +22 the previous day.
