Seventh Consecutive Day of 100+ New COVID Cases Reported in Maryland

July 19th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

For the seventh consecutive day, more than 100 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Maryland on Monday, even as the total number of vaccinated adults surpassed 3.5 million.  

Officials also reported that the state’s positivity rate went up to 1.48%.

Much of the increase is being attributed to the Delta variant.  The Allegany County Health Department confirmed the presence of the variant in the county last week.

During a press conference earlier this month, Gov. Larry Hogan said unvaccinated Marylanders accounted for 100% of COVID-related deaths in June, 95% of all new cases and 93% of hospitalizations.
