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

2,849 total cases in Fauquier since the pandemic began — up 30 from Sunday morning’s report.

403,386 Virginia cases — up 4,530 since Sunday.

The total includes 332,730 confirmed and 70,656 “probable” infections.

5,393 deaths statewide — up 10 from Sunday.

Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 4,758 and “probable” in 635.

4,621,152 PCR diagnostic tests statewide — up 32,988 since Sunday. Over the past seven days, 16.7 percent of those tests were positive, down slightly.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 19,182 as of Monday, up 87 since Sunday.

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, 33,142 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed a record 3,117 infected patients Monday — up 57 from Sunday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 36,259.

Hospitalizations previously peaked at 3,060 patients Sunday, Jan. 10, 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 four infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized (up 2) and 30 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 3,326 cases (up 21), 139 hospitalizations and 23 deaths in Culpeper.

• 1,187 infections (up 9), 49 hospitalizations and 15 deaths in Orange.

• 362 infections (up 6), 17 hospitalizations and 5 deaths in Madison.

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

The district has 75 COVID-19 deaths, and 320 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 78,140 PCR tests in the district so far — up 480. Over the last seven days, 12.4 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, down slightly.

Tony! I love you man.
Deno won't read past Facebook and Twitter.
His mind? A terrible waste.

Denosthenes - Kicked off other social media platforms, comes to an article on CV-19 to vent his spleen, only to find his spleen is missing any concrete presence.

Placing the blue lines or any changes to the American flag is a desecration of the flag. Beating a cop with an American Flag is a disgrace.

"18 U.S. Code § 700 - Desecration of the flag of the United States; penalties
U.S. Code
(1)Whoever knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the floor or ground, or tramples upon any flag of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both."
