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 (10/29), in Virginia we’re at 178,183 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), 12,454 hospitalizations and 3,636 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,429 (+0.8%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 1,345 (+0.8%). The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 2,783,885 TOTAL test results (up 22,404 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 70 (+0.6%), which is a slightly faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 64 (+0.5%). Deaths are reported +20 compared to +16 the previous day.
