The average number of daily Covid cases continues to rise in Alexandria, and the number of deaths from the virus has risen by one to 186.
As of Monday (April 11), the number of reported Covid cases in Alexandria reached 30,932, and the seven-day average of cases is 52.3, up from 40.9 at this point last week, according to the Virginia Department of Health.
The number of cases in the city went into steep decline after a record-setting 12,822 cases in January, dipping to 1,227 cases reported in February. Also in February, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave the city a “Low” community level. The numbers continued to fall in March, with just 593 new cases reported.
In April, 781 new cases were reported, and the city is on pace to match the number of cases reported in February. The number of cases also continues to rise in Fairfax County and Arlington, and last week, the Alexandria Health Department issued a spring break travel warning.
In Alexandria City Public Schools, there have been 707 cases reported since Dec. 1. Of those, 603 are children and 123 are staff, but the numbers on the school system’s dashboard don’t add up.
