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 (10/20), in Virginia we’re at 167,754 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), 11,955 hospitalizations and 3,485 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 926 (+0.6%) in the latest statistics, which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 690 (+0.4%). The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 2,598,125 TOTAL test results (up 14,481 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 73 (+0.6%), which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 21 (+0.2%). Deaths are reported +28 compared to +24 the previous day.
