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 (10/15), in Virginia we’re at 162,941 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), 11,704 hospitalizations and 3,388 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,331 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 805 (+0.5%). The number of TOTAL test results was not updated yesterday for whatever reason, but we’re currently at 2,506,299 TOTAL test results (up ??? 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 (+0.7%), which is a higher rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 30 (+0.3%). Deaths are reported +7, compared to +9 the previous day.
