Correction: Washingtonian on Tuesday erroneously reported the number of new Covid-19 infections in suburban Maryland to be 1,106; in fact there were 629 new cases. This mistake resulted in a number of inaccuracies to Tuesday’s story. Below is the corrected version.
The Washington region reported 1,284 new Covid-19 infections going into Tuesday, a 14 percent drop from the previous day’s tally and well below the area’s record highs.
All told, the Washington region’s total number of confirmed cases increased to 32,721 going into Tuesday, according to data pulled from daily updates to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. (Washingtonian’s full data set can be found here.)
To examine the effect of the coronavirus on the area, Washingtonian examined only the data from the eight relevant jurisdictions that comprise the metro area.
