Ed. Note: Yesterday there were 13,794 total positives.

From the Mayor’s Office:

“The District’s reported data for Thursday, August 27, 2020 includes 57 new positive coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, bringing the District’s overall positive case total to 13,851.

The District reported no additional COVID-19 related deaths.

Tragically, 605 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.”
