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 (9/9) in Virginia we’re at 797,344 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), 34,574 hospitalizations and 12,010 deaths from COVID-19. The number of reported cases was +3,948 (+0.50%) since yesterday, compared to +4,479 (+0.57%) in Wednesday 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 125 (+0.36%) since yesterday, compared to +137 (+0.40%) in in Wednesday morning’s stats.  Deaths are reported +33 since yesterday, compared to +30 in Wednesday morning’s stats. The number of PCR-ONLY test results is currently at 8,768,486 (up 21,889 since Tuesday morning’s stats).
