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 (10/7), in Virginia we’re at 153,691 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), 11,345 hospitalizations and 3,303 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 509 (+0.3%) in the latest statistics, which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 625 (+0.4%). The number of TOTAL test results is 2,325,683 (up 16,808 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 29 (+0.3%), which is a slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 57 (+0.5%). Deaths are reported +12, compared to +15 the previous day.
