The number of COVID-19 patients hospitalized on Sunday morning set another record in Virginia at 3,060.

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

2,819 total cases in Fauquier since the pandemic began — up 43 from Saturday morning’s report.

398,856 Virginia cases — up 5,141 since Saturday.

The total includes 329,185 confirmed and 69,671 “probable” infections.

5,383 deaths statewide — up 2 from Saturday.

Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 4,749 and “probable” in 634.

4,588,152 PCR diagnostic tests statewide — up 30,092 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 16.8 percent of those tests were positive, up slightly.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 19,095 as of Sunday, up 70 since Saturday.

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, 32,998 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed a record 3,060 infected patients Sunday — up 28 from Saturday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 36,058.

Hospitalizations previously peaked at 3,032 patients Friday, Jan. 9, 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.

One hundred and two infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized (up 1) and 30 have died since the pandemic started.

In the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, which includes Fauquier:

• 3,305 cases (up 33), 139 hospitalizations (up 1) and 23 deaths in Culpeper.

• 1,179 infections (up 26), 49 hospitalizations and 15 deaths in Orange.

• 356 infections (up 9), 17 hospitalizations and 5 deaths in Madison.

• 188 cases (up 2), 11 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 75 COVID-19 deaths, and 318 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 77,660 PCR tests in the district so far — up 774. Over the last seven days, 12.8 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, down slightly.

And today I learned that prison inmates and migrant labor camps get the Wuflu vaccine before teachers do. Unbelievable.

As soon as the vaccinations must be completed and concluded, otherwise this disease may mutate and become stronger.
