Coronavirus

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — The Virginia Department of Health data show 1,236 new cases on Thursday — the highest reported in four days for the Commonwealth.

It’s unclear if the high numbers are due to Labor Day’s effects showing earlier than expected in VDH data.

Hospitalizations are also up with 77 new patients being treated for the virus. Health officials are also reporting 11 additional deaths — two of which were in Portsmouth.

Statewide numbers:

New cases: (+1,236, 130,525 total) — 7-day average, up about 100 cases per day from two weeks ago
New deaths (+11, 2,708 total) — trending down in recent days
Hospitalizations (+77 patients, 10,085 total) — overall trend down over the last four weeks
Testing (7.6%, 7-day average of positive tests) — steady overall, but up by more than 1% compared to two weeks ago
