The rise of covid-19 halted life in the District, Maryland and Virginia, with schools and most businesses closed for months and residents were ordered to stay at home. Now most of the area has started phases of reopening. What started as a trickle of cases in early March has ballooned to more than 146,000 confirmed infections and more than 5,600 deaths in the nation’s capital and its neighboring states.

The District, Virginia, and Maryland on Monday reported 5 new fatalities and 659 new infections.

The region has had 5,660 covid-related deaths so far, 561 in the District, 3,246 in Maryland and 1,853 in Virginia.

Virginia did not provide county information for 18 deaths.

Experts believe the number of people who have contracted coronavirus outpaces those who have tested positive, because testing is still limited 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 District did not release new case numbers on March 31 as part of a change in how it reports the data.

Maryland has the most deaths and cases of the three jurisdictions, but when adjusted for population, more people per 100,000 residents in D.C. are getting infected or dying from covid-19. The number of known cases in all three jurisdictions has started to decline, but not at a consistent rate.

Virginia recorded its highest ever per-day increase in cases on May 25, with 1,483 new infections overnight. Officials said that spike was partly due to increased testing, and partly because of maintenance on the health department site caused some cases that would have been reported May 24 to be reported May 25.

About this page

This case tracker relies on data provided by the Maryland, D.C. and Virginia health departments. Earlier in the pandemic, The Post made small adjustments to some of the data to account for unexplained fluctuations in the state reports. On May 1, with the number of cases exceeding 45,000, The Post switched to a more automated process that does not allow for those adjustments. This resulted in a minor fluctuation in the state totals on May 1 and some small discrepancies in the historical data shown for April 25.

Population data are 5-year estimates from 2018 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau.
