Hampton Roads is seeing record high average daily COVID-19 cases after high numbers in recent days. Its combined total of cases over the last two days (189) is its highest two-day total since early April.

The region is now averaging just over 67 cases per day on average, topping a previous average high on May 31. The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission charts the daily cases specifically for Hampton Roads (WAVY’s count includes the Eastern Shore)

Virginia as a whole reported 471 cases, dipping back below 500 cases after three straight days of 500 or higher cases. 9 new deaths were also reported statewide (0 in Tidewater).

June 22 COVID-19 numbers statewide

  • New cases: (+471, 58,465 cumulative total) — average between 498 cases and 519 cases since last Monday
  • New deaths (+9, 1,620 total) — below 10 per day, down 24 per day from May 28 peak (1 in long-term care facilities, where 1,004 people have now died)
  • Hospitalizations (-15, 848 total) — lowest so far
  • Testing (6.5% percent positive, record low) — at least 5,821 tests Sunday, Saturday had record of at least 12,786 tests conducted. Of those 12,786, just 4.84% tested positive.

The overall percent of positive cases statewide hit another record low Monday with 6.5%, with at least 5,821 tests conducted Sunday. Saturday had record of at least 12,786 tests conducted. Of those 12,786, just 4.84% tested positive.

But that downward trend in percent of positive cases isn’t happening in some Hampton Roads localities, though that could be attributed to lower overall testing numbers. Current COVID-19 hospitalizations reached another record low Monday with 848 and a low in ICU numbers 240. 7,663 COVID-19 patients have now been discharged from the hospital.
