    Wednesday morning COVID-19 update from the Virginia Department of Health:

    2,899 total cases in Fauquier since the pandemic began — up 26 from Tuesday morning’s report.

    412,545 Virginia cases — up 4,598 since Tuesday.

    The total includes 339,468 confirmed and 73,077 “probable” infections.

    5,552 deaths statewide — up 75 from Tuesday.

    Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 4,892 and “probable” in 660.

    4,674,630 PCR diagnostic tests statewide — up 23,663 since Tuesday. Over the past seven days, 15.9 percent of those tests were positive, trending downward.

    Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 19,470 as of Wednesday, up 108 since Tuesday.

    But, the health department notes that its hospitalization figure — based on status at the time each case gets investigated — “underrepresents” the actual total.

    Since the pandemic began, 33,798 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

    State hospitals housed a record 3,209 infected patients Wednesday — up 24 from Tuesday, according to the association.

    That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 37,007.

    Hospitalizations previously peaked at 3,185 patients Tuesday, Jan. 12, according to the association.

    Healthcare providers and laboratories report statistics to the state as of 5 p.m. each day. The health department updates its report the following morning.

    Does anyone else calculate a Case Hospitalization Rate (CHR) and Case Fatality Rate (CFR) for Fauquier County? Using the past two months data, I have the CHR at 3.0%, and CFR at an amazing 0.1%.
