Maryland’s Single-Day COVID-19 Death Toll at Highest Since June

Maryland on Tuesday recorded its largest number of daily coronavirus-related deaths since June amid a recent surge in cases that has alarmed state officials and triggered a fresh round of restrictions in several jurisdictions.

The 38 reported deaths came along with 2,697 new cases, according to the state health department. The state also has a positivity rate of 6.6%, well above the target rate of 5%.

Throughout the state, health officials have re-instituted restrictions to hinder the spread of the coronavirus by limiting the capacity and hours of restaurants, bars and other establishments. In addition, Gov. Larry Hogan said he will send compliance units to each county to check on whether the new regulations are being heeded.

As of Wednesday, Maryland has more than 188,000 coronavirus cases and nearly 4,400 virus-related deaths, according to health department statistics.
