April 5, 2021

Maryland health officials reported 1,669 new cases of the coronavirus and eight more deaths Sunday as the state posted its highest number of daily COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations due to the virus since January. Despite that more than 1.1 million residents have been fully vaccinated, according to the state, an increase in Maryland’s infection rate that began in late March has continued into April as the state’s average testing positivity rate stays above the 5% level the World Health Organization recommends jurisdictions reach before relaxing social distancing and business restrictions.
