COVID-19 Update: Deaths Climb to 20, Cases Now at 653 in Alexandria

Another person has died and there are now 653 cases of COVID-19 in Alexandria, an increase of 26 cases since yesterday, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

There are now 20 COVID-19-related fatalities in Alexandria, and the most recent death was a male in his 80s. Additionally, the VDH and city incorrectly reported that a nineteenth person died in Alexandria, and amended their figures to show that there were 18 deaths as of yesterday. That means that there are, in fact, two additional deaths — if the 20 fatalities listed by VDH are accurate.

A majority of the fatalities have been senior citizens, although the most infected residents are in their 30s and 40s.

  • 80+     — Six deaths, 31 cases
  • 70-79 — Six deaths, 42 cases
  • 60-69 — One death, 69 cases
  • 50-59 — Six deaths, 95 cases
  • 40-49 — Zero deaths, 121 cases
  • 30-39 — Zero deaths, 155 cases
  • 20-29 — One death, 89 cases
  • 10-19  — Zero deaths, 29 cases
  • 0-9     — Zero deaths, 22 cases

The cumulative number of COVID-19 cases in Alexandria is now 627, including 18 fatalities (yesterday’s count included one fatality mistakenly attributed to Alexandria). Detailed data is available through the links at alexandriava.gov/Coronavirus. It is critical 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.previously

There have been 339 females and 310 males who tested positive for COVID-19 in the city, and it is not clear how many people have recovered.

VDH also reported that there are 82 COVID-19-related hospitalizations in Alexandria, and there have been 2,159 tests administered.

Statewide, there have been 492 reported deaths, and there are 14,339 cases (13,794 confirmed, 545 probable) and 2,165 hospitalizations (including seven probable cases), according to VDH.

The full breakdown of the spread so far:
