Coronavirus cases in Loudoun jump to 87

That’s an increase of more than 20 new cases since Monday’s reporting.

The number of coronavirus cases in Loudoun County leapt up to 87 in new numbers out Tuesday afternoon. That’s an increase of 26 cases over the 61 cases that were reported as of Monday afternoon. The numbers come from the Virginia Department of Health.

There are two known deaths in Loudoun County so far — a local school teacher in her 70s and a resident of a Sterling nursing home.

Statewide, there are 1,250 cases as of Tuesday afternoon and 27 people have died. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued a “stay at home” order on Monday, limiting the reasons people can be outside of their home, in hopes of stemming the tide of the virus’ spread.

    We need location data. See the LTM article out this afternoon on the same. Local officials are keeping us in the dark and at additional risk.
