NoVa Reporting Fewer COVID-19 Cases, Health Department Says

Northern Virginia, which consists of the suburbs and exurbs of the District of Columbia, has fewer of the commonwealth’s cases and deaths of COVID-19, according to statistics from the state Department of Health.

The region has 55.2 percent of the total number of cases in the commonwealth, InsideNoVa reported Tuesday. But with 362 new cases reported on Tuesday, the region accounted for just 43 percent of the commonwealth’s new cases, less than half for the fourth consecutive day.

The department of health reported 841 new cases across Virginia and 15 new deaths, including five in Northern Virginia. Virginia’s total number of coronavirus cases stands at 46,239, with Northern Virginia accounting for 25,503 cases.

The state’s toll for coronavirus-related deaths is currently 1,407, with Northern Virginia accounting for more than half of the deaths at 754.

The region’s average positivity rates continued to drop, with health officials saying 10 percent has become the goal and five percent as the ideal. Along those metrics, Arlington County has a seven-day average of 9.5 percent.
