Weekend Va. COVID-19 totals: 57,703 new cases and 1,706 more hospitalizations

Virginia Dept. of Health also says pending updates to compiling deaths means deaths are not being accurately counted and will change by the end of the month

(Case totals included reports by the Virginia Department of Health from 5 pm Friday through 5 pm Sunday. The department also reports: “VDH is updating its case definition for COVID-19 associated deaths to agree with the recently updated national guidance for classifying COVID-19 associated deaths. There will be a delay in reporting new COVID-19 associated deaths during January 2022 as VDH applies these changes.” In summary, the death counts reported here are probably inaccurate.)
