Maryland’s COVID-19 Positivity Rate Drops To 12.4

May 28th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the State of Maryland’s COVID-19 positivity rate has dropped to 12.4%, and the state is now up to nearly 100 major testing sites statewide, including 13 new CVS Health drive-thru centers.

“Each day, we are conducting more tests and offering more places for Marylanders to get tested,” said Governor Hogan. “We have now conducted 316,797 COVID-19 tests, and we are up to nearly 100 major testing sites statewide. I want to thank CVS Health for working closely with us to expand their testing options across the state, and we continue to encourage all of our nearly 1,200 licensed pharmacies to offer testing.”

As part of the state’s long-term testing strategy, Maryland continues to expand community-based testing, opening a new VEIP site today in Clinton and a major state testing site tomorrow at Six Flags America.

    This begs the question, 12.4% of what? Tests given? The population of the State?
    Those numbers say nothing.

    Do the math. 316,797 Covid-19 tests have been performed. If you multiply that number by 12.4% the positive test results are 39,282 persons in Maryland who have the virus.
