Another COVID-19 Death in Alexandria as Cases Climb to 547

There has been another death and there are now 547 positive or probable COVID-19 cases in Alexandria, an increase of 35 cases since yesterday, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

There have been 15 fatalities in Alexandria, according to VDH. There have been nine male deaths and six female deaths, and there have been 258 males and 285 females with the virus.

There have also been six small outbreaks in the city, three of which occurred at long term care facilities. There have been 80 deaths at long term care facilities and seven deaths from a congregate setting, the latter of which includes apartment complexes, churches and private homes.

The city broke the 500 case mark yesterday, and is nearly half way to 600 cases. There have been 188 probable and new cases reported in the last week alone.

The Virginia Department of Health also reported that there have been 81 COVID-19-related hospitalizations in Alexandria, and there have been 1,984 tests administered.

It is not clear how many Alexandrians with COVID-19 have completely recovered, which the total tally does not account for.

Statewide, there have been 349 reported deaths, and there are 11,594 cases (11,169 confirmed, 425 probable) and 1,753 hospitalizations (including 10 probable cases), according to VDH.
