According to the VDH, 4,643 people were hospitalized on Sunday and 1,375 people died as a result of COVID-19 diseases.

The coronavirus has affected most people between the ages of 50 and 69, as this group accounts for 27 percent of cases, data shows.

“But we’re also seeing cases in people in their twenties,” Virginia Governor Ralph Northam previously said.

In fact, Northam said the group accounts for 15.8 percent of the cases in the state.

“There has been talk and I’ve seen activity in Virginia that this only affects the elderly. Well, it doesn’t. It affects us all,” Northam said. “So take this seriously and please stay home.”

In 22,287 cases, more women were infected with the virus than 21,904 in men. No gender was reported for 416 cases in the Commonwealth.

Covid19 precautions

Most patients with COVID-19 have mild to moderate symptoms. However, in a small fraction of patients, COVID-19 can lead to more severe illness, including death, especially in the elderly or in those with chronic illnesses.

COVID-19 mainly spreads through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Symptoms appear within 14 days of exposure to an infectious person.

The Virginia health authorities required the following precautions:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer only when soap and water are not available.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • module
  • Avoid unnecessary travel.
  • Rely on CBS 6 News and WTVR.com for the most comprehensive coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic.
