The Virginia Department of Health reported on its website Wednesday that 391 people in Virginia have tested positive for COVID-19.

That's an increase of 101 cases, or 34.8 percent, from the 290 reported at noon Tuesday. Fairfax County saw an increase of 30 cases. The Richmond area now has 46 cases: Henrico 20, Richmond 13, Chesterfield 11 and Hanover 2.

There are coronavirus cases in 53 Virginia cities and counties, an increase of 11 since Tuesday.

The VDH also said that 5,370 have been tested for the virus in Virginia, and there are nine deaths statewide.

On March 19, state health officials said there’s a lag in the reporting of statewide numbers, and figures on the VDH website might not include cases reported by individual localities or local health districts. The state has a 5 p.m. cutoff for tabulating daily numbers, so the numbers reported on the website each day are 19 hours old.
