There are now 1,240 cases of COVID-19 in Alexandria, an increase of 16 new or probable case since yesterday.
No new deaths have been announced and there have been 30 fatalities due to the virus in the city. Additionally, the city’s Hispanic population leads with positive cases at 553 and four reported deaths.
The most recent fatality was a woman in her 70s, whose death was announced Saturday, May 9, by the Virginia Department of Health.
There are more than 400 new or probable cases in the city in the month of May alone. VDH also reported that there are 145 COVID-19-related hospitalizations in Alexandria, and that there have been 93 cases associated with 11 outbreaks in the city, and that 90 of those cases have been health care workers.
Nine of the outbreaks occurred at long-term care facilities, and 15 deaths have occurred at such facilities, although that number has not been updated since the city’s release on May 2. The other outbreaks occurred at a “congregate” setting and an educational setting.
It is not clear how many people have recovered from the virus, and an accurate count on the number of cases is difficult to maintain in Alexandria since the highest infection rates are in the city’s poorest areas.
The area of the city with the leading number of cases is the 22305 ZIP code, which includes the Arlandria, Potomac Yard and Potomac West neighborhoods, had the largest number of reported cases at 370 (10 more cases since yesterday), with an estimated population of 16,095 residents.
Local groups are demanding that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam authorize supplying 10,000 testing kits to the Arlandria area, and providing housing for poor COVID-positive patients living in jam-packed housing.
People under the age of 50 have been getting infected in greater numbers, while there were relatively few new cases for residents above the age of 70. A large percentage of deaths have occurred at long-term care facilities, and there has been one death of a person in their 20s. There have been 13 reported deaths of residents in their 80s.
There are now reportedly 642 females with the virus (with 16 deaths and 66 hospitalizations) and 595 males (with 14 deaths and 75 hospitalizations) who tested positive for COVID-19 in the city. The sex of three cases was not reported.
The age breakdown of deaths and new cases:

- 70-79 — Eight deaths, 70 cases, 28 hospitalizations (No new cases for second straight day)
