Md. Coronavirus Hospitalizations Under 1,000 For First Time Since November

Maryland’s number of current coronavirus hospitalizations dropped Sunday to 973 — the first time since mid-November the total has been fewer than 1,000.

The state’s daily positivity rate of 2.5 percent is the lowest since Oct. 17, and the number of cases per 100,000 people is fewer than 13, down more than 76 percent since last month, Gov. Larry Hogan’s office announced.

Hogan said the trends, while encouraging, aren’t a signal to ease up on measures to contain the virus.

“Our vaccination rate is rising, our hospitalizations and key metrics are all declining, and with each day, we are moving one step closer to eliminating and eradicating this pandemic,” the Republican governor said in a statement. “This is more good news, but we need to remain vigilant, and keep doing the things that keep ourselves, our families, and our communities safe.”

As of Monday, Maryland has roughly 377,000 coronavirus cases and 7,550 related deaths, according to state health department statistics.

The state has administered about 1.1 million coronavirus vaccine doses so far, with nearly half of those recipients having gotten both doses of the two-shot vaccines available.
