The Virginia Department of Health reported Monday that the statewide total for COVID-19 cases is 62,189 — an increase of 1,619 from the 60,570 reported Friday.

The 62,189 cases consist of 59,522 confirmed cases and 2,667 probable cases. There are 1,740 COVID-19 deaths in Virginia — 1,635 confirmed and 105 probable. That’s an increase of 40 from the 1,700 reported Friday.

The VDH defines probable COVID-19 cases as people who are symptomatic with a known exposure to COVID-19, but whose cases have not been confirmed with a positive test.

In the Richmond area, there are 8,071 cases: 2,869 in Chesterfield County, 2,584 in Henrico County, 2,195 in Richmond and 423 in Hanover County.

Also, the region has 246 deaths attributed to the virus: 141 in Henrico, 49 in Chesterfield, 30 in Richmond and 26 in Hanover.

As the overall number of positive COVID-19 test results in Virginia grows, data from the VDH coronavirus dashboard shows the percentage of positive results from testing is down. The seven-day average for percentage of positive test results was at 5.9% as of June 25, which is the most recent figure provided by the VDH. That’s down from a peak of 22.2% on April 19.

State health officials have said there’s a lag in the reporting of statewide numbers on the VDH website. Figures on the website might not include cases or deaths reported by localities or local health districts.
