Northern Virginia reported 487 new cases—its largest daily tally of the pandemic.
This increase, however, was moderated by figures coming out of suburban Maryland, where the number of confirmed new cases fell by 28 percent, to 459, from the previous day.
All told, the DMV region’s total number of confirmed cases increased to 24,261 going into Wednesday, according to data pulled from daily updates to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. (Washingtonian’s full data set can be found here.)
