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 (9/6) in Virginia we’re at 786,910 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), 34,239 hospitalizations and 11,929 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases was +8,743 (+1.12%) since Friday morning’s stats, compared to +4,070 (+0.53%) in Friday morning’s stats  [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 213 (+0.63%) since Friday morning’s stats, compared to +132 (+0.39%) in Friday morning’s stats.  Deaths are reported +30 since Friday morning, compared to +20 in Friday morning’s stats. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 8,703,656 (up 64,078 since Friday morning).
