Maryland Marks 10,000th COVID Death Since Start of Pandemic

Maryland on Thursday recorded its 10,000th coronavirus-related death since the outset of the pandemic last year — a grim reminder of the ongoing carnage even as the state’s metrics trend upward.

The state health department reported 21 new deaths Thursday, putting the toll at 10,011.

Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday directed flags to fly at half-staff statewide in remembrance of those who have died.

The state’s coronavirus-related statistics are otherwise on the upswing, however. Maryland’s seven-day average testing positivity rate has decreased 0.08% to 4.46%, stabilizing somewhat after rising above the recommended mark of 5% in recent weeks.

Additionally, hospitalizations dropped statewide by 15 from the previous day, bringing the current total down to 804.

Maryland is also among the nation’s best regarding vaccinations. Roughly 82% of the state’s adult population has gotten at least one dose of a vaccine, and about 3.8 million residents are fully vaccinated, according to a state-run online dashboard.
