Virginia Sept. 9 COVID-19 update: 882 new cases, 11 new deaths statewide; hospitalizations trend down

Portsmouth

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — The Virginia Department of Health reported 882 new cases on Wednesday, which was below average for the third straight day.

It’s unclear if the lower numbers are due to reporting lag or signs of a possible trend back down. Labor Day’s effects will likely take at least a week to show up in VDH data.

Hampton Roads’ overall numbers, particularly the region’s percent positivity, are continuing to trend down. Of the 11 new deaths reported, none were in Hampton Roads.

Statewide numbers:

New cases: (+882, 129,289 total) — 7-day average, up about 100 cases per day from two weeks ago
New deaths (+11, 2,697 total) — trending down in recent days
Hospitalizations (-43 patients, 10,008 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

Reported deaths are down, but they also tend to rise and fall, as VDH’s chart shows.
