Coronavirus

(WFXR) — Sovah Health has released its latest update regarding COVID-19 patients in both of its facilities.

As of Wednesday, Feb. 3, Sovah Health has 51 patients across both campuses with 32 in Danville and 19 in Martinsville who have tested positive and are being treated for COVID-19 in its facilities.

This number is a decrease from its previous release on Jan. 20 where 75 patients were being treated.

Hospital officials say they continue to have adequate capacity to meet patients’ needs, including in critical care and intensive care at each of its facilities, at the current time.

Sovah Health has also released information about its COVID-19 vaccination process.

To date, Sovah Health has administered or redistributed a total of 8,059 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

VDH will be holding another closed “point of dispensing” (POD) vaccination clinic on Saturday, Feb. 6 in conjunction with Sovah Health-Danville, the city and county, and the Cherrystone Missionary Baptist Association.

Sovah Health has exhausted all of its Danville campus vaccine supply at this time but will continue to request additional vaccine to support the current VDH vaccine priorities.

Sovah Health is currently working with the VDH and the City of Martinsville to schedule a closed POD vaccination at its Martinsville location on Saturday.

Once additional vaccines are received, additional clinics and community vaccination events will be scheduled.
