COVID-19 Deaths in Fairfax County Surpass 100

More than 100 people in Fairfax County have died as a result of COVID-19, according to state data.

As of today (Tuesday), 114 people in the county died from the respiratory illness. The number of total cases continues to rise.

A dashboard created by the county offers new insights into localized data.

The number of new cases by week for the Fairfax Health District, which includes the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church and towns in the county, is below:

  • Feb. 28: four cases
  • March 1: 27 cases
  • March 8: 103 cases
  • March 15: 247 cases
  • March 22: 305 cases
  • March 29: 411 cases
  • April 5: 532 cases
  • April 12: 553 cases
  • April 19: 239 cases

Data for the last three weeks is incomplete due to gaps between the time of exposure and the onset of symptoms, according to the county.

So far, the pandemic continues to grow exponentially if the number of total confirmed cases is charted against the number of new confirmed cases per week. This means that the rate of new cases is equal to the rate of existing cases.

A slowdown in new cases is detected when the line begins to trend downward.
