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 (11/18), in Virginia we’re at 208,833 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), 13,707 hospitalizations and 3,860 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went up 2,071 (+1.0%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 2,125 (+1.0%). As for hospitalizations, they went up 99 (+0.7%), which is a faster rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 56 (+0.4%). Deaths are reported +25 compared to +29 the previous day. The number of TOTAL test results is currently at 3,229,178 TOTAL test results (up 20,859 from yesterday; note that, according to researchers at Harvard, we need 21,145 test results/day for mitigation, 81,741/day for suppression).
