BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Maryland has now topped 47,000 as the number of hospitalizations continues to drop steadily, according to state numbers Monday morning.

Gov. Hogan’s communications director Mike Ricci said hospitalizations have dropped by more than 25 percent since April 30.

The latest numbers show a decline in the number of hospitalizations from 1,290 to 1,279 on Monday. There are currently 517 people in intensive care — up slightly — and 762 people in acute care.

Over the course of the pandemic, 8,092 people have ever been hospitalized in the state due to the virus with 3,329 people released from isolation.

There are a total of 47,152 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state, up 839 cases since Sunday. At this time, 2,187 people in Maryland have died from the virus, with another 115 probable deaths reported.

At this time, 202,425 Marylanders have tested negative for the virus.

CORONAVIRUS RESOURCES: 

Prince George’s and Montgomery counties continue to see the highest case counts, with nine of the top ten zip codes within their counties:

Meanwhile, a study from Britain’s Imperial College London suggested deaths could surge if lockdowns are lifted without caution. Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health echoed similar concerns.

“No matter where a state is in reopening, people should continue to physical distance by at least six feet, by wearing cloth masks when they are outside of their home and indoor spaces around other people,” said Dr. Tom Inglesby with the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

One of Maryland’s youngest victims was 15-year-old Dar’yana Dyson. She passed away last week. Governor Larry Hogan used his Memorial Day message to honor her.

“Just last week, we lost the first child in our state to the virus,” the governor said in a video address. “We pray for her family.”

    Get ready for a huge spike after a weekend of carriers running around w/o maske to party and get those essential hair cuts.

    The sad part is most who will die are older folks who were not out and will catch it from the idiots.
