Maryland’s COVID Metrics at New Lows

Fewer than 1% of Maryland’s coronavirus tests within the past week have registered positive, according to Gov. Larry Hogan’s office.

Montgomery County leads the state in the lowest positivity rate by jurisdiction with 0.45%. Neighboring Prince George’s County, at one time having one of the state’s highest positivity rates, stands at 1.22% which is still above average but far lower than earlier this year, WTOP reported.

Baltimore City had a 0.88%, showing stark improvement, too. Meanwhile, Garrett County in Western Maryland had the highest positivity rate in the state at 4.24%, according to the governor’s website.

Overall, the number of cases per 100,000 people in the state has declined to 1.9%, the second-lowest in the country, the website said. Additionally, hospitalizations are at 245, the lowest since March 2020, WTOP reported.

Plus, 71.2% of adult Marylanders have gotten at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

As of Thursday, Maryland has administered 6.3 million vaccine doses, with more than 3 million residents fully vaccinated, according to state data.
