RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Here’s the latest coronavirus data from the Virginia Department of Health for Monday, November 30.

Cases in Virginia have increased by 1,893 — bringing the state’s total to 237,835. The state health department also only reported four deaths. The current state positivity rate is 7.5 percent.

Compared to last week’s daily COVID-19 case count, cases are decreasing in the state. The 7-day moving average is 2,400.

Health officials are expecting to see a surge in coronavirus cases because of Thanksgiving celebrations. Last week, data analysts tracking COVID-19 data and advising Gov. Ralph Northam’s response to the pandemic said they could recommend a two-week shutdown to slow mitigation.

At a national level, cases are surging. In an effort to combat COVID-19 Moderna Inc. said it would ask U.S. and European regulators Monday to allow emergency use of its COVID-19 vaccine as new study results confirm the shots offer strong protection — ramping up the race to begin limited vaccinations as the coronavirus rampage worsens.

Multiple vaccine candidates must succeed for the world to stamp out the pandemic, which has been on the upswing in the U.S. and Europe. U.S. hospitals have been stretched to the limit as the nation has seen more than 160,000 new cases per day and more than 1,400 daily deaths. Since first emerging nearly a year ago in China, the virus has killed more than 1.4 million people worldwide.
