COVID-19 Virginia hospitalization chart July 1

Data provided by the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association showed the number of COVID-19 patients being treated in intensive care units in Virginia hospitals and those on ventilators are both at their lowest levels since at least early April.

As Northern Virginia and the rest of the state entered Phase Three of reopening on Wednesday, the state health department reported a continued decline in new coronavirus cases in the region. 

The Northern Virginia region reported only 124 new cases Wednesday, with 93 of those coming from Loudoun and Prince William counties combined, according to the Virginia Department of Health's daily report. The region's average of new cases over the past seven days dropped to 157.1, the lowest it has been since April 10, when it stood at 153.1.

Statewide, 416 new cases were reported Wednesday.  In a separate report, the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association said the number of patients being treated statewide for COVID-19 in intensive care units fell to 205 and the number on ventilators fell to 95. Both numbers are the lowest since the association began reporting the data on April 6.   

Northern Virginia now accounts for 50.7% of the state's total of 63,203 cases, the health department reported. Northern Virginia's share of the total cases, once nearly 60%, has been slowly declining in recent weeks. 

The health department reported 23 new deaths statewide linked to COVID-19, but only two of those were in Northern Virginia. Of the state's 1,786 deaths linked to the coronavirus, more than half, 947, have been in Northern Virginia. Fairfax County alone has had more than a quarter of the deaths, with 488.
