RICHMOND, Va. - Every region of Virginia now has at least one confirmed case of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Southwest Virginia was the final region to have a confirme case. This brings the number of cases in Virginia up to 114.

The Commonwealth now has increased ability to test more than 1,000 tests.

The State Health Commissioner said we do not have a vaccine for COVID-19, the only thing we have is social distancing.
