RICHMOND, Va. (WDBJ) - The Virginia Department of Health is reporting 677,744 total cases of COVID-19 across the commonwealth as of Sunday, June 13, 2021, dating to the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. That’s up 73 from the 677,671 reported Saturday, a smaller increase than the 141 new cases reported from Friday to Saturday.

Per the latest update from the state’s vaccine dashboard, 8,606,021 doses of vaccine have been administered in Virginia as of Sunday, up from the 8,591,028 doses reported Saturday. 56.8% of the state’s population has gotten at least one dose, with 47.4% fully-vaccinated. 69% of Virginians 18 and over have received at least one dose and 58.6% are fully vaccinated.

7,553,224 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests have been conducted in Virginia as of Sunday, with a 1.9% positivity rate from those tests over the last week, the same as Saturday’s number.

As of Sunday, there were 11,307 recorded coronavirus-related deaths in the commonwealth since the pandemic’s beginning, up from 11,293 Saturday.

323 people across Virginia were hospitalized as of Sunday with confirmed or test-pending cases of COVID-19, down from the 345 reported Saturday. 56,794 COVID patients have been released from hospitals in Virginia since the beginning of the pandemic. That’s according to the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association, which gets a daily report from hospitals around the commonwealth.

These hospital numbers are different from those reported by VDH, which only gathers hospitalization status at the time each case is investigated by VDH and is an under-representation of Virginia hospitalizations.

Any new confirmed cases from health departments throughout the state the rest of the day won’t show up until at least the following day on the state list, as the official numbers are only updated once a day, with a 5 p.m. cutoff each day for new cases to be reflected on the next day’s list.
