PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — The Virginia Department of Health is reporting 772 new cases of COVID-19 statewide and 26 new deaths related to the virus.

733 of those new cases were confirmed with testing, with 39 more diagnosed by doctors but not confirmed via testing. Those cases are considered “probable” cases by health officials.

The commonwealth’s total number of cases is now at 12,366 overall as of Saturday. This is the highest daily increase of COVID-19 cases in Virginia reported in one day, eclipsing April 23’s record number of 675 cases reported.

More than 1,000 of those cases are at long-term facilities in the commonwealth, with 80 deaths at those facilities — mostly at one in Henrico County.
