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 (5/9), in Virginia we’re at 666,650 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), 28,897 hospitalizations and 10,895 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases went to 539 (+0.1%) in the latest statistics, which is the same rate of increase than the day before, when reported cases were up 779 (+0.1%) . As for hospitalizations, they went up 21 (+0.1%), which is a slightly slower rate of increase than the day before, when hospitalizations were up 56 (+0.2%). Deaths are reported +10 compared to +11 the previous day. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 7,172,384 (up 13,974 from yesterday).
P.S. No sign of new VHHA numbers as of 9:50 am, but yesterday there were only 799 Virginians hospitalized for COVID-19, which was the lowest since July 6.
