Maryland’s COVID Cases, Positivity Rate Dropping

Maryland’s daily toll of new coronavirus cases fell below 1,000 on Monday for the first time in nearly a week, one of a handful of metrics trending in the right direction for the state.

The state health department reported 809 new coronavirus cases, down 524 from the previous day. Monday’s total was the lowest since Tuesday when 649 cases were recorded and just the sixth time since Sept. 9 the number was fewer than 1,000.

Maryland now has 545,028 confirmed cases since the start of the pandemic. The state also reported seven coronavirus-related deaths Monday, bringing the overall total to 10,370.

But the state’s daily average seven-day positivity rate fell 0.16% to 3.73%, well below the target rate of 5%.

Additionally, coronavirus-related hospitalizations dropped by eight to 745, with 189 currently under intensive care — 11 fewer than Sunday.

As of Monday, roughly 3.9 million Maryland residents have been fully vaccinated, with 84.6% of all adults having received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, according to a health department dashboard.
