New daily COVID-19 cases reported across Virginia set a new record Monday with 3,242. It was the first time the number topped 3,000 since the pandemic began last March.

Still, the state registered 2,117 new cases on Sunday, which pushed the seven-day average to a record-breaking 2,262.

That record was broken today, however, as the new seven-day average shot up again to 2,343, according to the latest VDH report. 

There were 210 new cases reported in the Prince William Health District on Monday. That's not a record-breaking number, as cases were higher on Nov. 16 as well as at least three times in May.

Remember H1N1? Guess how many American "cases" there were in the U.S.? SIXTY MILLION. That's 60,000,000. During that time, Obama & Biden were in the White House. They did next-to-nothing about it. You should think about that.

someone

I can't believe the Fake News didn't say that RBG died of COVID. They let a crisis go to waste.

ed1

Maybe because it's not fake news? Perhaps you should take a more critical look at your own sources of information.

zcxnissan

6% of 186k is.

Catharpin411

Once this China Virus cant be used as a Socialist Demo political football the China Virus will simply go away.

IMPORTANT NEWS NOT FOUND HERE: CDC declares that ONLY 6% of the deaths are FROM the China Virus...the balance are deaths from thing like cancer and stroke but the patient MAY have also had the China Virus...6%...the CDC has been LYING to us for months...ya lets all hail, Fauci. Bet he resigns soon and goes to work for Gates. Remember that we have several Socialist Demos that moved sick people in with Senior Citizens and KILLED them. Can't wait for the class action suit against them.

Once again this is simply a terrible article, poorly written and even more poorly researched.

Stop printing lies as it makes you look like China is sending you cash to print such lies

Omarndc72

Same old socialists propaganda with this newspaper. Garbage.

Omarndc72

Is time to move on from this covid aka flu. Let's get back to normal and live with it. Enough of the scare tactics. We didn't shut the economy for bird flu, swine flu , or ebola or even the flu pandemic. Does anyone remember this happening?? No. So let's cut the bull sh×t and get back to normal.

JosephGeorge4Neabsco

Show the number of deaths and speed of transmission for each of those events. If you cannot, live your life and stfu.

Catharpin411

A few passing thoughts:

1. it is such bad journalism keeping this article as long as it is...NO ONE is reading it all..you earn an F

2.notice all the young rioters, looters and protestors getting sick...they earn an "S" for stupidity

3. notice that the recovery rate is now over 99%...yes lets please put the thumbscrews to the entire state with a 99% recovery rate

4. notice if you will that the China Virus now cures cancer and stroke to name a few as doctors move to ID the China Virus as the bad guy so they can get more kickback money,

5. let's are sure to close schools since the Union says so

6. the taxpayer will make out well since all that money not spent by the schools will be extra cash now. I mean they aren't going to simply spend it willy nilly right...LOL

7. let's be sure to punish the whole state for what NOVA Richmond and Hampton do

8. VA is soooo poorly run and so under the thumb of the Unions and Bloomberg...it has become a grotesque joke

zcxnissan

Preach it Catharpin411. This state is too far gone on corruption now. It's inbred in Progressives.

someone

Yes. Kathleen Corn-Filler is a total socialist from New York.

zcxnissan

Notice the recent rise in cases in younger people due to the protest/riot spike.

zcxnissan

As well as no appreciable rise in deaths or hospitalizations. Despite the spike in cases caused by the protests/riots. Pretty much a spike nationwide in all the areas where their were large protests/riots.

Omarndc72

Once the covid scam starts to go away, the race and riots will continue, when that slows down, back to the covid nonsense.

Marty

Instead of a mile long article, one table with basic info would provide the necessary information. Total number of infections, % hospitalization, % death. Overall and daily. And by age groups.Such table would fit in the computer screen.

zcxnissan

Sad part is it truly peaked in April. Gov. Blackface dragged it out for political gain just like the mask edict, months after he should have done it. Now we have hot, warm and humid temperatures and sunlight the worst things for a virus and yet we have to wear masks in certain businesses. Good thing it's only enforceable by the health dept.

RaiderRider

number of cases is irrelevant as there is more testing. How about telling us about the hospitalization rate instead.

Marty

These number are pretty much useless. Especially for 60 years would and below. Would be good to know their health status and other relevant info.

Heymarket

I am disappointed to see PrinceWilliamTimes stopped reporting COVID-19 statistics (cases/deaths) for the "Northern Virginia" area. This was quite useful. They kept reporting these as long as the numbers were going up. Once they started trending downward, they stopped. I was counting on them to finish telling the whole story.

zcxnissan

Still pretty much a nursing home disease unless you have comorbidities like diabetes and obesity while younger. I see with the protests that social distancing never really mattered. Today's progressive democrat, do as I say not as I do. See Gov. Northam about that one.

Jia7c

New here. I took a test last Tuesday/Wednesday in Manassas. They still haven’t called me. Called the people doing the test they state they don’t handle the results and someone will call this week.

Marty

If you feel OK, why would you take the test? 5 minutes later (figuratively speaking) you can get infected and the entire test was a waste of time.

Marty

Our inept governor and his staff should travel, to Florida to learn how to handle the virus.

InsideCommenter

This comment aged horribly Florida is an epicenter of the virus while Virginia is doing much better.

Omarndc72

Let businesses set their rules for dealing with the public in a safe manner till this blows over. Keep the beurocrats and politicians quarantine in Richmond, leave the rest of us alone.

zcxnissan

Its obvious it peaked in April by any metric. Obvious and deliberate overreaction by the Governor.

ed1

Peaked yes but due to the lack of appropriate measures by people out and about, it's declining at an alarming slow rate.

zcxnissan

Double peaked and has fallen off the map literally.

Marty

Looks like the governor is incapable of managing the virus crisis. Things are going from bad to worse by the day.

Omarndc72

You want to see how fast they open. ? Stop paying all of the state employees and politicians from governor down. Then you see how fast the politicians change.

Jameson

What is going to change by June 10th that will allow businesses to re-open. I can only imagine he will try to push the date back again.

someone

As more people are tested, more people will test positive for COVID-19. Flu viruses can hang-around for years. So, businesses could be closed for years.

zcxnissan

Its insane to do that you know that right?

someone

Yes. I know it's insane. Here we are, it's the end of August & the Democrats are still pushing their end-of-the-world narrative. It's crazy & CORRUPT.

joatmon

Because people are impatient and not taking it as seriously as they should. The stay at home order needs to be strictly enforced and more businesses need to shut down. I'm sorry, but McDonalds and Starbucks aren't essential. I see kids continuing to play on playgrounds and teenagers socializing because they are too dumb to realize the ramifications of their actions, nor do they care because they seem no threat to themselves. I received an email from a painting contractor the other day saying they are open and operating as an essential business. Really!? Stay home people or this will never get better!

Marty

We need to shut down 75% of the government, it is also not essential. Then we shall see how fast everything reopens. For the people who work at McDonalds, McDonalds is essential.

zcxnissan

Brad take your gibberish elsewhere fascist. More people are dying of murder, suicide and other health conditions because of quarantines and lock downs then this bad year flu. If you had practiced better eating and sanitary habits we probably wouldn't even have to discuss this you confused gender fool. Go see a psychiatrist.

Omarndc72

Its simple, go back to work. If your sick dont go out stay home till is passed. Stay away from elder people and wash your hands dont touch your face.

weouchere

InsideCommenter + Brad = Morons. Were you idiots calling him out for acting too soon before you started saying he acted too late like the rest of the Libtard party?

InsideCommenter

weouchere + zcxnissan = batshit crazy morons. I was never calling him out for acting too soon, he acted to late if we had started these measures two weeks earlier we would've been able to avoid 90% of the cases. The gas-lighting and lies you all do are just hilarious.

zcxnissan

Actually it has been noted by many medical studies that blacks are more susceptible because they have many underlying conditions like obesity, heart disease, diabetes, unhealthy lifestyles. Social distancing is not being practiced in the cities. That's obvious. See New York City. Also wondering why nursing home death statistics are not being reported properly. They are ginning up the totals trying to use any disaster for political advantage. InsideCommenter and Brad your TDS is obvious.

zcxnissan

The numbers in Chesterfield pale in comparison to Democrat cities and counties nationwide.

InsideCommenter

Ignorant statement of the article award has now been granted. A virus will spread where more people live, places that are more densely populated are naturally where the virus will spread faster. Despite this Democratic areas have been doing better than Red states who are whining like crybabies about not being able to get a haircut or dine in, a rise in cases in the state of Kentucky was attributed to fascist protests about the stay at home orders.

zcxnissan

Gaslighting was a mastery first aced by Tamanny Hall democrats and passed on from generation to generation. From there to democrat Klansmen and segregationists. Even up to the modern day. Nowadays they have turned more fascistic/communist with their green new deals and universal incomes. Not to mention the bs being slung about global warming/climate change, or whatever they will call it next week.

Brad

Look, people are dying because of this terrible disease. Why don't you take your lies and obsessions to some neo-conservative chat room, no one wants to read your gibberish here.

InsideCommenter

What is this hot pile of garbage you call an argument. All you do is name call talk about facts and logic not whatever you saw on Facebook.

ed1

All he said was people are dying. That is accurate. Nationally we've had more deaths in a month than from a year with flu and that's with all the social distancing. If you're not capable of taking in seriously or don't want to be stuck at home, please at least where a mask and avoid contact with others.

InsideCommenter

ed1,

I agree with the one who talked about the mortality of this grave disease. The one who I was rebutting was zcxnissan who constantly trolls and makes up lies.

Joemama

If these non-essential democrats would stay home it would stop spreading.

InsideCommenter

Maybe if the orange cheeto and his cultists would stay at their home instead of prancing around we could flatten the curve.

Brad

Or maybe if the orange cheeto and his cultists had done their job timely and correctly in the first place these unfortunates might not have been infected or died.

zcxnissan

I guess going to Chinatown doesn't count if your Nancy Pelosi. So many lies, it comes natural to the old bat. She's probably a super spreader. She probably used hydroxychloroquine as an antidote.

ed1

Why would she use an unproven, dangerous drug pushed by trump. Was he being sarcastic about that one as well or only about disinfectant and really bright lights?

zcxnissan

Funny how most of the deaths are in Democrat cities and states. I guess they don't follow rules or laws.

InsideCommenter

Chesterfield is heavily Republican and has many cases. Anyhow cases tend to be in areas that have a larger population. Has nothing to do with political affiliation or rule following.
