Latest coronavirus test results in DC, Maryland and Virginia

WTOP is tracking coronavirus and vaccination data across Virginia, Maryland and D.C.

The coronavirus data include the number of coronavirus cases, deaths, recoveries and the total number of test results reported by each jurisdiction, among other data points. New numbers are updated each day as individual states release new data. The plus or minus signs (+ or -) next to daily numbers indicate how much those numbers are going up or down compared to the previous day.

The data provide a picture of the spread of the virus and its impact; however, the data have shifted over time.

Beginning April 5, 2020, Virginia, following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, began counting “probable” coronavirus cases in its case numbers, hospitalizations and deaths. The CDC defines a probable case as one where a patient has coronavirus symptoms, contact with a known case or is a member of an at-risk group and where no other diagnosis is more likely.

Confirmed cases are those illnesses that are confirmed by a lab test.

On April 15, 2020, Maryland began reporting “probable” coronavirus deaths. Maryland health classifies a death as probable if their death certificate lists COVID-19 as the cause of death, but it has not been confirmed by a test. The totals below for Maryland include both confirmed and probable deaths.
