Just six days after the number of COVID-19 cases in Arlington topped the 100 mark, the county is now reporting more than 200 cases.
As of Monday morning there were 203 known coronavirus cases in Arlington County, according to the latest Virginia Dept. of Health data. An additional 35 cases were reported Sunday, the county’s steepest daily increase so far.
Statewide, there are 2,878 known cases, 497 hospitalizations, 54 deaths and 24,521 cases. Neighboring Alexandria has 93 reported cases, while Fairfax County — with about five times Arlington’s population — has 488 reported cases.
The state health department’s data shows relatively few cases among those 19 years of age and younger, but those 20 and up appear similarly susceptible to contracting the virus.
