Alexandria just eclipsed February with new cases of COVID-19

It’s been a bad month for COVID-19 in Alexandria, as the number of new cases has eclipsed those reported in February, according to the Virginia Department of Health.

As of Sunday (April 25) there were 1,229 new cases reported this month, a 107% increase over the 593 cases reported in March. There were also 1,227 cases reported in February, which was a steep decline after a record-setting 12,822 cases in January.

Last week, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention downgraded the city’s community level from “Low” to “Medium.”

Friday (April 22), the number of reported Covid cases increased by 77 — the highest single-day number of cases since February 11, when 98 new cases were reported. There are now 31,280 cases of the virus reported since the pandemic began in March 2020, and the seven-day average of new cases is now 54.4, up from 52.3 last week.

The number of deaths remains at 186.

In Alexandria City Public Schools, there have been 718 cases reported since Dec. 1. Of those, 614 are children and 123 are staff, but the numbers on the school system’s dashboard don’t add up.

The city remains in a state of emergency until June 30.
