Maryland’s COVID Metrics Trending in Right Direction

Maryland’s coronavirus numbers are generally trending in the right direction, state health department data shows.

State officials reported just 212 new cases Monday, raising the total number of infections since the pandemic’s onset to 456,216. The state hasn’t reported more than 1,000 daily cases since April 28.

Three coronavirus-related deaths were reported Monday, bringing the state toll to 8,740.

Though the state’s number of hospitalizations went up one to 613 Monday, that number has dropped by 670 since April 20, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The state’s seven-day positivity rate hovers at 2.51%, down 0.01% from Sunday. The rate fell to as low as 1.65% Saturday, a fact Gov. Larry Hogan touted on Twitter.

As of Monday, Maryland has administered roughly 5.6 million of its 7.2 million doses of coronavirus vaccine, with about 67% of the state’s adult population having received at least one dose, according to a state tracker.

Approximately 2.6 million Marylanders, or roughly 42.27% of the state’s population, are fully vaccinated, health officials said.
