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

559 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 2 from Saturday.

84,567 Virginia cases — up 958 since Saturday. The total includes 81,393 confirmed and 3,174 “probable” infections.

2,078 deaths statewide — up 3 from Saturday. Of the fatalities, the health department classified COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 1,975 and “probable” in 103.

1,025,066 diagnostic tests statewide — up 17,750 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 7.5 percent of those tests were positive.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 7,593 as of Sunday, up 23 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, 10,882 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 1,174 infected patients Sunday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 12,056.

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.

Thirty-four infected Fauquier patients have been hospitalized and 8 have died since the pandemic started.

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

• 919 cases, 72 hospitalizations and 12 deaths in Culpeper.

• 194 infections, 15 hospitalizations and 3 deaths in Orange.

• 53 infections, 5 hospitalizations and 1 death in Madison.

• 39 cases and 4 hospitalizations and 1 death in Rappahannock.

The district has 25 COVID-19 deaths, and 130 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 19,449 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 272 from Saturday. Over the last seven days, 3.2 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, trending downward.

Knowing that we are studying it in the US is being studied is helpful, as is the first blush look of China of 20% incidence of certain symptoms. Thank you.

Jerome, I'm interested in the frequency and severity of post-COVID-19 symptoms. From your post you must have a data source. Please share it.

I'd like to compare the symptoms to several other diseases. For example, once Celiac is diagnosed it takes from months to years for the patient to feel normal again. Beyond the lingering symptoms, they have the burden of a special, restrictive, and more expensive diet their entire life.

Your data source should be most helpful.

The after effects of anyone hospitalized due to Covid-19 are long lasting, and then comes the hospital bill.
