The state of emergency might be over, but the pandemic remains in Alexandria.
Following a two week blackout period, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is reporting four more deaths from COVID-19, bringing the death toll to 195.
The CDC National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) did not return death certificates for “coding purposes” for two weeks — starting June 6.
“For a few weeks after the blackout period, you should expect to see a higher number of COVID-19-associated deaths added to the dashboards and data sets,” the Virginia Department of Health said. “This is because NCHS will be sending back newly-coded and re-coded death certificates to VDH that were put on hold during the blackout period.
As of Monday (July 11), there are 37,634 reported cases, and the seven-day average of new cases is steady at 70.9 — the same number it was on June 20.
There have been 772 new cases reported in the first 11 days of July alone, and the seven-day positivity rate for Covid tests is 17.4%.
January saw the most new cases with 12,822 reported, followed by 2,900 cases in May, 2,357 cases in June, 1,488 cases in April, 1,227 cases in February and 593 cases in March.
The city currently has a Medium community level, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Alexandria Health Department’s last update was on June 21, to announce the availability of vaccine shots for kids older than six months of age.
