Three More COVID-19 Deaths, Alexandria Advises Residents Not To Ingest Disinfectants

Three more people have died and there are now 575 probable or positive cases in Alexandria, an increase of 28 cases since yesterday, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

The Alexandria Health Department is also now warning residents against ingesting disinfectants, after President Trump suggested that doing so could eradicate the coronavirus. The department cited the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s warning that disinfectants should never be ingested or mixed.

There are now 18 COVID-19-related fatalities in Alexandria, according to VDH. There have been 10 male deaths and eight female deaths, and there have been 299 females and 272 males 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.

Statewide, there have been 436 reported deaths, and there are 12,366 cases (11,902 confirmed, 464 probable) and 1,942 hospitalizations (including seven probable cases), according to VDH.
