State health officials reported no new deaths linked to COVID-19 in Northern Virginia in the latest daily report Sunday. It's the first day with no new deaths reported since April 6.
It does not mean that no deaths occurred in a 24-hour period — it can take days for deaths to be added to the state's COVID-19 data. A total of 818 people have died due to the coronavirus in Northern Virginia since March 21.
The state reported five new deaths due to COVID-19, and the total number of deaths is at 1,546. Northern Virginia accounts for more than half of those deaths at 818, and Fairfax County alone accounts over a quarter of the deaths, with 423.
Total hospitalizations statewide fell to its lowest number since at least April 6, the earliest that data is available. Regional data wasn't available Sunday morning, but Northern Virginia has seen its hospitalizations drop to less than half the number at its peak April 30.
The region added 262 new cases Sunday, higher than in recent days, but it still brought the 7-day average of new cases to its lowest level since mid-April.
Statewide, 637 new cases were reported Sunday. That puts Northern Virginia's share of new cases at 41% — through most of the pandemic, it has been higher than 50% of the total.
The state's total number of COVID-19 cases is at 54,506. Northern Virginia accounts for 29,280 cases, or 53.7%.
The state added 8,974 diagnostic test results to its database Sunday. Overall, including antibody tests, over 500,000 coronavirus tests have been conducted in the state, although some people have been tested more than once.
The health department's COVID-19 data is updated each morning by 10 a.m. and includes reports by local health agencies before 5 p.m. the previous day.
