Maryland health officials reported 986 new cases of the coronavirus Thursday, and 30 more deaths caused by the virus. The number of new daily cases has declined significantly since mid-January, when the state was averaging more than 3,000 new cases each day after the holidays. The daily total has been below 1,000 since Sunday. The state’s seven-day average testing positivity rate declined for the ninth straight day to 4.13% Thursday, down from 4.17% Wednesday.
