Virginia COVID-19 Cases Up More Than 1,500 Thursday

Virginia reported more than 1,500 new coronavirus cases again Thursday, continuing a recent surge in cases after months of relative steadiness.

The 1,521 cases reported Thursday was the fourth time in the past seven days that the state’s daily total was more than 1,500, including a record-high 2,103 on Saturday, according to state health department statistics.

After going months with the state’s seven-day moving average of daily cases hovering around 1,000 and not exceeding 1,200, the number has risen steadily in recent weeks, peaking Thursday at 1,546.

By comparison, the average dropped to 498 on June 21 while the state was under a stay-at-home order from Gov. Ralph Northam.

Northam has called the recent spike “concerning” but hasn’t shown any indication that he’d reimpose such restrictions.

As of Thursday, Virginia has roughly 198,000 coronavirus cases and 3,758 virus-related deaths since the start of the pandemic.
