VDH

Who gets sick

The coronavirus first affected people aged 50 to 69, but accounts for 20.8% of cases in Virginia over the past 13 weeks.

Persons aged 30 to 49 now account for 30.8% of cases, data show, while people in their 20s accounted for 16.8% of cases in the state.

In addition, statistics show that children and adolescents account for 24.4% of cases.

More women have been infected with the virus in 879,073 cases against the 778,769 reported cases in men.

** Virginia Department of Health officials said the recent increase in COVID-19 cases due to omicron resulted in an increase in COVID-19-associated deaths.

“Beginning on February 2, VDH’s Cases dashboard began to reflect these deaths. The majority of the COVID-19-associated deaths (92%) that will be added occurred in January 2022,” Ministry of Health officials wrote. “Certified death certificates are still being reported, so VDH will continue to receive new death certificates for the deaths that occurred in January 2022 and those that will occur subsequently over the next few weeks and months until the Omicron rise disappears.”

* Office of Epidemiology officials have previously said that ongoing quality assurance (QA), which is performed on all COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths, is the reason for the decline in the number of hospitalizations.

What you can and should not do once you have been fully vaccinated.

How to protect yourself and others once you have been fully vaccinated

COVID-19 vaccines are effective in protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start doing some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

We are still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should continue to take precautions– like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet away from others and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces – in public places until we know more.

These recommendations can help you make decisions about daily activities after you are fully vaccinated.
