D.C. Marks Fifth Straight Day Without Coronavirus Death

The District hasn’t had a coronavirus-related death for the past five days, according to data from the D.C. Department of Health.

The most recent recorded deaths came on July 8, when four deaths were reported in the city.

Before the current streak, D.C. hadn’t gone two consecutive days without a coronavirus-related death since March 24, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

As of Tuesday, nearly 11,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 568 deaths, have been reported in the District since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

D.C. Health Director LaQuandra Nesbitt said present infections could lead to hospitalizations and demises at a later time, WRC reported. She described the scenario as an increase in infections, followed by a growth in hospitalizations and casualties two weeks after that.
