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 (10/21), in Virginia we’re at 168,772 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), 12,010 hospitalizations and 3,515 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 1,018 (+0.6%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 926 (+0.6%). The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 2,619,550 TOTAL test results (up 21,425 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 55 (+0.5%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 73 (+0.6%). Deaths are reported +30 compared to +28 the previous day.
