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 (8/31) in Virginia we’re at 766,435 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), 33,689 hospitalizations and 11,842 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases was +3,487 (+0.46%) since yesterday, compared to +8,297 (+1.10%) from Friday through Sunday [NOTE: VDH isn’t publicly updating its stats on the weekends anymore, for whatever reasons…frustrating for keeping an accurate count of the statistics, for creating graphics that make sense, and also premature given that the pandemic most certainly isn’t over!]. As for hospitalizations, they went up 132 (+0.39%) since yesterday, compared to +213 (+0.64%) from Friday through Sunday.  Deaths are reported +32 since yesterday, compared to +41 from Friday through Sunday. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 8,564,341 (up 22,940 since yesterday).
