March 24, 2021
As Maryland continues to vaccinate people against the coronavirus, officials continue to monitor COVID variants in the state. During a press conference Tuesday, Maryland officials called the new variants “concerning” and say it’s targeting the state’s younger residents. “We are in a race between the variants and vaccination rates,” said Dr. David Marcozzi, COVID Incident Commander with UMMS. “Unfortunately it appears B.1.1.7,  the U.K. variant, is spreading even more easily between us and making us sicker, which is concerning.” Marcozzi said if someone is infected with B.1.1.7, it’ll cause more symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
