From the Mayor’s Office:

“The District’s reported data for Sunday, July 26, 2020 includes 78 new positive coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, bringing the District’s overall positive case total to 11,858.

The District reported one additional COVID-19 related death.

Tragically, 582 District residents have lost their lives due to COVID-19.

The community spread chart is subject to fluctuation because the data is based on symptom onset date. As national demand for testing increases and results take longer to come back in DC and across the country, DC Health has identified a need to increase the reporting lag time by four days to reduce volatility in the data. The most recent data reflects an increase in community spread. To ensure this graph accurately reflects the most recent data, the community spread count is being paused as these adjustments are made.”

The District’s data shows that 3.5% of new COVID-19 cases are from quarantined contacts. That data is represented in the chart below.

The transmission rate (Rt) data has been adjusted to account for a four-day increase in the reporting lag period. Similar to the adjustment in reporting community spread, this adjustment will reduce fluctuations in data. Currently, DC Health is reporting a sustained transmission rate of 0.97. That data is represented in the chart below.

The District’s data shows a positivity rate of 5.6% among residents. That data is represented in the chart below.
