Alexandria Asks Residents to Participate in Virtual Meeting with Dr. Anthony Fauci

As Alexandria’s COVID-19 caseload continues to grow, the city is encouraging residents to participate in an upcoming virtual discussion with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

There are now 7,230 cases of COVID-19 in Alexandria, and the death toll has risen to 87. The most recent fatality was a woman in her 40s, according to the Virginia Department of Health. Across Virginia, there are 344,345 cases and there have been 4,984 deaths.

The free discussion on Friday, Jan. 8, is being hosted by Governor Ralph Northam’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the Virginia Department of Health’s Office of Equity, and Virginia Commonwealth University’s Massey Cancer Center.

Fauci says that vaccination targets have been missed so far this month, and expects the pandemic to get worse before it gets better.

The conversation is part of the “Facts & Faith Friday” group that has met to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the Black community.

Registration is required for the event, and participants need to fill out a questionnaire with their basic information, including age, race, sex and whether they have a specific question for Fauci.
