Maryland COVID-19 numbers continue to fall

Maryland’s COVID-19 numbers are reaching their lowest levels in months, Governor Larry Hogan’s office said in a statement Tuesday.

Maryland’s COVID-19 numbers have reached their lowest levels in months, Governor Larry Hogan’s office said in a statement Tuesday.

The seven-day test positivity fell to 2.92%, Hogan’s office said – the first time the figure has been below 3% since last November 6. The state has the fourth-lowest positivity in the country.

While this means that the state is on the other side of the omicron-driven increase in positive tests, it is worth pointing out that the rate is still on a plateau – that figure stood at 0.9% at the end of June and has not been below current levels since late July.

The case rate is 11.3 per. 100,000 inhabitants, said Hogan’s office – the lowest in the United States. The rate reached the bottom of 0.93 last June 29.

The number of Marylanders in hospitals is down to 540, a drop from the peak in January of just under 3,500, Hogan’s office said; intensive care units are at 107, the lowest since August.
