Va. COVID-19 tolls: 17,219 new cases, 229 more hospitalizations, and 18 additional deaths

But Friday's report from the Department of Health reports on just one new hospitalization in our area. Floyd County topped 2,000 total infections with nine new ones.

(Case reports by the Virginia Department of Health. 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 low.)
