Virginia COVID-19 case chart

The state reported more new coronavirus cases Saturday than on any day since June 7, and a seven-day average of new cases ticked up again. 

Both Virginia and the Northern Virginia region reported the highest daily number of new coronavirus cases in almost a month on Saturday, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

Northern Virginia reported 256 new cases, and statewide 716 new cases were reported. Both numbers were the highest since June 7.  

The health department reported only four new deaths related to COVID-19, however, following four straight days in which at least 23 new deaths were reported.  The health department has noted that deaths are a lagging indicator because they are not recorded until a doctor submits the death certificate to the health department.   

Only one of the new reported deaths was in Northern Virginia, which has 960 in total, or over half of the 1,849 deaths reported statewide.   Fairfax County, the state's largest locality, accounts for over a quarter of the deaths, with 495.

Hospitalizations for COVID-19 fell slightly statewide. 

Northern Virginia now accounts for 50.1% of the state's total of 65,109 cases, the health department reported. Northern Virginia's share of the total cases, once nearly 60%, has been slowly declining in recent weeks.
