According to the Virginia Department of Health website, not all of this weeks reported numbers were current. Their website reads: “For the week of August 16, VDH anticipates an influx of new data. This development is due to some labs beginning to report results electronically as opposed to by fax. These new numbers do not represent new data and will be represented on the day the lab originally reported the results.”
