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

1,000 total cases in Fauquier County since the pandemic began — up 5 from Saturday.

158,716 Virginia cases — up 811 since Saturday. The total includes 149,631 confirmed and 9,085 “probable” infections.

3,358 deaths statewide — up 4 from Saturday. Of the total fatalities, the health department classifies COVID-19 as the confirmed cause in 3,120 and “probable” in 238.

2,256,802 diagnostic tests statewide — up 18,598 since Saturday. Over the past seven days, 4.6 percent of those tests were positive, down slightly.

Statewide hospitalizations for COVID-19 over the course of the pandemic totaled 11,519 as of Sunday, up 18 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, 18,492 “confirmed COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized and discharged,” according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.

State hospitals housed 924 infected patients Sunday, down 19 from Saturday, according to the association.

That puts total Virginia hospitalizations during the pandemic at 19,416.

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

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

• 1,246 cases (up 6), 94 hospitalizations and 18 deaths in Culpeper.

• 352 infections (up 2), 22 hospitalizations and 5 deaths in Orange.

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

• 66 cases (unchanged), 5 hospitalizations and 2 deaths in Rappahannock.

The district has 53 COVID-19 deaths, and 179 infected patients have been hospitalized during the pandemic.

The health department reported 38,467 diagnostic tests in the district so far, up 221 from Saturday. Over the last seven days, 3.6 percent of tests conducted in the five-county district were positive, trending downward.

@DougF: Crickets, huh?!? The President said he's immune. Can the President possibly know that???

Cammie Rodgers · October 12, 2020 at 7:33 pm
IMHO, I don't think he or the First Einstein Visa Lady had/have CV-19. It's all another ruse by the IMPOTUS to get the sympathy vote. Next they'll be calling him Jesus the Second.

When those drugs such as Regenron ($96,000 a dose) wear off, it crash cart time.
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 11:59 am
@DougF: I know you won't give me a straight answer fr that question, so I'll ask you an even easier one; Is it possible for the President of the United States to know if he is immune at this point? Let's see how honest you are.
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 11:53 am
@DougF: Is the President of the United States telling the truth when he says he is immune? That's a simple question.
DougF · October 12, 2020 at 11:41 am
badelectronics, if 750 million were infected, and reinfections are very, very tiny in amount, any claim that immunity does not exist is absolutely absurd.

I'm surprised you can't figure that our for yourself.
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 11:28 am
@DougF: The President of the United States say he is immune. Is he telling the truth?
Sammy · October 12, 2020 at 11:10 am
potus could've been honest, communicated clearly, accurately the threat

did the opposite, lied, said there were only a few cases that would disappear soon, no further action needed - and we know now he knew different (Woodward recordings)

200,000+ dead, may double again before March, and this is just the US -- over a million dead worldwide

simple honesty is the answer you seek but little donny trump cannot tell the truth when his personal interests are involved, lies even to his family, let alone the nation and the world
AngryBob · October 12, 2020 at 10:05 am
It's too bad we don't still have Dear Leader Obama. He could use his pen and his phone to cure the Wuflu.

Seriously, what do you people think the President can do about a virus? Do you blame Trump when you stub your toe? Probably do. That's the liberal way. Expect the government to take care of all your needs.

We've basically been in full lockdown for seven months. What more can we possibly do?
DougF · October 12, 2020 at 9:38 am
badelectonics, while WHO estimates over 750 million have been infected, only tiny, tiny number have become reinfected. The last time I checked it was fewer than ten (not ten million, but ten). Reasons include infection from a different strain (like seasonal flu), disorders of the immune system, false positives in the initial or subsequent test, and others.

Once again, you shouldn't have to ask. Just look it up for yourself. Unless you think acquiring knowledge is too difficult.

@Savefauquircounty2019: Why do you want to raise my taxes?
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 8:55 am
Thank you Sammy.
Sammy · October 12, 2020 at 8:38 am
help is on the way .. latest poll: Webb +3

fringe right put the seat in imminent danger, may lose it
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 7:51 am
@Save: President Trump is our leader.
Savefauquiercounty2019 · October 12, 2020 at 7:26 am
When the county won't step up to the plate and pay for proactive and preventive measures in not blame Trump.
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 7:23 am
@ConcernedMom: The President said he's immune on For during an interview with Maria Bartiromo. I'd like to see DougF avoid answering the question by puking out more word salad.
ConcernedMom · October 12, 2020 at 7:07 am
You can catch it again. There's been people who have been re infected that were younger. Stay safe.
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 6:03 am
Doug: Are people immune from Covid-19 after contracting it and recovering? Can a person catch COVID-19 again?
badelectronics · October 12, 2020 at 5:52 am
DougF: What is President Trump doing for poor people?
DougF · October 11, 2020 at 8:24 pm
Top epidemiologist John Ioannidis lowered his worldwide COVID-19 infection fatality rate estimate from .27% to a range of .15% - .2%. That's about double the seasonal flu. For those under 70, he estimates the IFR is .03%-.04%.

I am making $165 an hour working from home. i was greatly surprised at the same time as my neighbor advised me she changed into averaging $ninety five however I see the way it works now. I experience masses freedom now that i’m my non-public boss.
That is what I do ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓ ­­⇛­⇛­⇛­⇛­⇛­►
DougF · October 11, 2020 at 2:43 pm
Karl Engels (I like your choice of name, BTW) while you sit comfortably in your home, presumably eating well and having all of the first world comforts, the policy you endorse our of hatred for Trump will help push between 88 and 115 million into extreme poverty.

I guess you don't care about any of them, so long as you can feel good about yourself hating Trump.
karl engels · October 11, 2020 at 2:04 pm
I’d have been more than happy to endure a lockdown for however long it took, as took place in Vietnam and look at how well they are currently doing, whereas we have massive unemployment with more than 200,000 dead with that number steadily climbing where the presidents privileged ass was still stupid enough to get sick
DougF · October 11, 2020 at 1:55 pm
WHO joins the chorus against lock-downs: "Dr. David Nabarro...claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty...It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition."

It's far past time to open up in a way that protects the most vulnerable and allows everyone else to regain their freedom to live.

It's no wonder both Scientific American and the New England Journal of Medicine have both condemned Trump's reelection.
Linda Ward · October 11, 2020 at 12:29 pm

"There’s no relief. This virus, I can’t escape it. It’s torn up our family. It’s all over my Facebook. It’s the election. It’s Trump. It’s what I keep thinking about. How many people would have gotten sick if I’d never hosted that weekend? One? Maybe two? The grief comes in waves, but that guilt just sits."
