So, at this point (10/18), in Virginia we’re at 166,138 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), 11,861 hospitalizations and 3,433 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 900 (+0.5%) in the latest statistics, which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,114 (+0.7%). The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 2,571,681 TOTAL test results (up 22,331 from yesterday; note that, according to researchers at Harvard, we need 21,145 test results/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression). As for hospitalizations, they went up 30 (+0.3%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 51 (+0.4%).  Deaths are reported +11 compared to +14 the previous day.
