Three More COVID-19 Deaths in Alexandria as Infections Keep Going Down

There have been three more coronavirus-related deaths in Alexandria, and the case count has reached 10,186, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

That’s 149 cases since Monday, continuing a downward trend in cases. Two of the deaths were in their 80s and one was in their 60s. One victim was a woman and two were men.

There have also been 503 total hospitalizations in Alexandria since the onset of the pandemic, and the city’s seven-day moving average is now at 26.6, which is down from last Monday’s total of 37.4 cases.

Across Virginia, there have been 7,486 deaths and there are or have been 565,270 cases of the virus. There have also been 5.7 million PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests and the state’s seven-day positivity rate is 8.1%.

Vaccine Update

As of last Friday, 17,099 residents have received at least one dose and 5,799 residents have been fully vaccinated. More than 35,000 city residents have pre-registered to get the vaccine.

According to the Alexandria Health Department:

Between February 12 and February 18, AHD administered 1,192 first doses and 792 second doses. These numbers do not include vaccines administered by private providers and pharmacies. This week’s inclement weather forced rescheduled events, delayed vaccine shipments, and resulted in lower than expected weekly total of vaccinations. Alexandria continues to receive under 2,000 first doses a week, with about half going to AHD events and half going to private provider partners.

Across Virginia, 1.1 million people have received at least one dose, and 481,287 people have been fully vaccinated, according to VDH.
