Alexandria Resident Dies of COVID-19, Cases Climb to 383

Another Alexandria resident has died of COVID-19, bringing the number of fatalities to eight, and there are also 29 new cases in the city, according to a city announcement.

There are now 383 cases of COVID-19 in Alexandria, including the eight fatalities.

The number of cases has increased significantly this month, and city reported that the Virginia Department of Health is now counting probable cases, as well as positive results.

“Probable cases include symptomatic patients diagnosed in a clinical setting, but not tested,” the city release said. “This change in case categorization provides a more accurate picture of how COVID-19 is impacting Alexandria. It is essential for all community members, even those who don’t have a diagnosed illness, to stay home except for essential trips such as brief visits to the pharmacy, doctor, or grocery store.”

The Alexandria Health Department will not release any information on the fatalities, and the city’s health director will only release basic information if he deems it necessary for the public to know.

The city also advised that anyone feeling overwhelmed by the emergency should visit the Coping with Fear and Uncertainty webpage. Additionally, the city’s emergency mental health services hotline is available 24/7 at 703-746-3401.

Statewide, there have been 277 deaths related to COVID-19, and there are more that 8,500 cases.
