The 7 counties with the most reported cases are shown above.

In Maryland, Montgomery County has the most with 447 cases, followed by Prince George's County with 403 cases. The Virginia jurisdiction with the most positive tests is Fairfax County, with 288 cases, followed by Arlington County with 119 cases.

Experts believe the number of people who have contracted coronavirus far outpaces those who have tested positive, because testing is still limited to people who meet certain criteria and it can take about two weeks for people to become symptomatic. Public health officials say the number of cases will continue to rise as testing expands.

The region has had 76 covid-related deaths so far, 11 in the District, 31 in Maryland and 34 in Virginia.
