Maryland’s Daily COVID Case Toll Shrinks, But Hospitalizations, Positivity Rate Jump

Maryland daily number of new coronavirus cases continued trending in the right direction Monday after a recent spike drove the number to levels not seen for months.

The health department logged 447 new cases Monday, 100 fewer than the previous day and the first time in the past five days the daily toll fell below 500. Prior to Saturday, when the recent influx peaked at 587, the number hadn’t been that high since May 8 when 656 new cases were reported.

However, the state coronavirus-related hospitalizations and the seven-day average daily positivity rate both jumped noticeably.

For the second straight day, 25 people were hospitalized Monday with COVID-19-related complications, bringing the current total to 281, according to health department data.

The state positivity rate is now 3.23%, an increase of 0.2% over the past 24 hours.

Meanwhile, Maryland’s vaccination rate is among the best in the country. As of Monday, roughly 3.6 Marylanders, or about 58% of the state population, has been fully vaccinated — in the top 10 for states nationwide, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data.
