Maryland’s Daily COVID Death Toll at Zero for First Time Since October

Maryland on Monday reported no new coronavirus-related deaths for a second straight day — keeping the daily toll at zero for the first time since October.

Gov. Larry Hogan touted the state’s recent success against the coronavirus in a news release, including the number of newly confirmed cases declining to 40 — the second consecutive day of fewer than 50 reported cases, which hadn’t previously happened since March 23, 2020.

Maryland’s seven-day positivity rate has also fallen 89% since mid-April to a record-low of 0.66%, with 5% considered a healthy rate by public health experts.

Additionally, case rates in Maryland fell to 1.07 per 100,000, the lowest level since March 26, 2020, and down 95% since mid-April.

Meanwhile, neighboring Virginia also reached an important benchmark with 70% of its adult population now having at least dose of a coronavirus vaccine — the 16th state to do so — said White House COVID-19 Data Director Cyrus Shahpar, WTOP reported.
