Maryland health officials reported 1,554 new cases of the coronavirus Thursday, along with 31 more deaths associated with the virus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. The new cases mark an uptick from Tuesday and Wednesday when the state reported fewer than 1,000 new cases on consecutive days for the first time since early November. That dip, however, coincided with fewer than 20,000 test results being reported on back-to-back days for the first time since late October — a decline likely attributable to the recent snow.
