Note the spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus, which impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically. A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Maryland health officials reported 1,137 new cases of the coronavirus and 33 more deaths associated with it Wednesday. Those additions bring Maryland to 366,666 infections and 7,267 confirmed fatalities since the state reported its first case of COVID-19 in March 2020. Before Wednesday, the state had reported fewer than 1,000 cases on four of the previous eight days, but those days coincide with lower numbers of test results being reported. More than 30,000 test results were reported Wednesday, more than double Tuesday’s total.
