6,565,563 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests have been conducted in Virginia as of Sunday, with a 6.4% positivity rate from those tests over the last week, the same number reported Saturday.
As of Sunday, there are 10,329 recorded coronavirus-related deaths in the commonwealth since the pandemic’s beginning, up from 10,287 reported Saturday.
1,035 people across Virginia were hospitalized as of Sunday with confirmed or test-pending cases of COVID-19, up from 1,022 Saturday. 51,818 COVID patients have been released from hospitals in Virginia since the beginning of the pandemic. That’s according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association, which gets a daily report from hospitals around the commonwealth.
These hospital numbers are different from those reported by VDH, which only gathers hospitalization status at the time each case is investigated by VDH and is an under-representation of Virginia hospitalizations.
Any new confirmed cases from health departments throughout the state the rest of the day won’t show up until at least the following day on the state list, as the official numbers are only updated once a day, with a 5 p.m. cutoff each day for new cases to be reflected on the next day’s list.
