See below for the latest COVID-19 statistics for Virginia, courtesy of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA). As you can see, total cases hit 1,635,510, up 1,659 since the Thursday morning report and up 22,791 over the past 10 days (waaaayyyy down from the 10-day average of 198,847 on 1/19); the Omicron wave definitely appears to be declining. As for hospitalizations, according to VDH, we’re now at a cumulative 47,258, up 16 from the Thursday morning statistics (also, VHHA has hospitalizations at 1,002 on a definite downward trajectory; the lowest level since late November 2021). And deaths are at 18,536, up 96 from the Thursday morning statistics (the trend in deaths seems to be lagging the decline in cases and hospitalizations).
