From the Mayor’s Office:
“The District’s reported data includes 135 new positive coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and 196 backlogged cases from February 2021, bringing the District’s overall positive case total to 41,910. The addition of the backlogged cases from seven facilities in today’s data has also impacted today’s daily case rate and mean test turnaround time. Now that the issue has been resolved, the reported number of cases will return to normal.
The District reported one additional resident lost his life due to COVID-19.
Tragically, 1,036 District residents have lost their lives due to COVID-19.
