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

1,021 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 1 from Tuesday.

161,610 Virginia cases — up 805 since Tuesday. The total includes 152,039 confirmed and 9,571 “probable” infections.

3,381 deaths statewide — up 9 from Tuesday. Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 3,141 and “probable” in 240.

2,304,369 diagnostic tests statewide — up 11,807 since Tuesday. Over the past seven days, 4.6 percent of those tests were positive, up slightly.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 11,628 as of Wednesday, up 30 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, 19,756 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,007 infected patients Wednesday, up 8 from Tuesday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 19,754.

Virginia hospitalizations for COVID-19 peaked at 1,625 patients on May 8.

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.

Fifty-one infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 25 have died since the pandemic started.

• 1,257 cases (up 3), 94 hospitalizations and 18 deaths in Culpeper.

• 117 infections (unchanged), 8 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Madison.

• 65 cases (down 1), 5 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 53 COVID-19 deaths, and 182 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.
