BREAKING: First COVID-19 Fatality in Alexandria, Cases Jump to 130

The first death in Alexandria due to COVID-19 has been reported by the health department, and the number of cases jumped by 26 for a total of 130 cases in the city.

“My colleagues and I are saddened by the first confirmed death of an Alexandria resident due to COVID-19, and our thoughts are with their loved ones,” Dr. Stephen Haering, the city’s health director, said in a statement. “The best way to honor our neighbor is to recommit ourselves to the most effective ways to stop this virus: stay at home as much as possible, wash hands frequently, and maintain six feet of personal space whenever you can.”

The patient was hospitalized, and died of respiratory complications associated with COVID-19, according to the health department. The city has withheld their age, sex and identity.

Haering added, “Everyone has a role in reducing the impacts of this pandemic. We must all be vigilant to protect ourselves and especially our most vulnerable community members.”

The 26 new cases is the largest increase in the city since the first case was reported on March 11. There have been 86 new cases in the month of April alone.
