LATEST: Hospitalizations Up, 900+ More Cases As Total Surpasses 95K

Hospitalizations went down again slightly from 528 to 515, with ICU numbers going down again from 139 to 127.

Dr. Jonathan Thierman, with LifeBridge Health, said this is partly because of new treatments which have been improved since the start of the pandemic.

“The severity seems to be less than it was initially and things seem to be better on that front,” Dr. Thierman said.

Eleven more Marylanders have died from the virus since Friday, bringing the total number of deaths to 3,440.

The state has administered 1,398,266 tests with 924,942 coming back negative.

The state’s positivity rate went up slightly from 3.90 percent to 4.03 percent.

CORONAVIRUS RESOURCES: 

Baltimore’s positivity rate is 30 percent higher than the rest of the state.

The city is now capping large gatherings to 25 people and reducing capacity at businesses like retail shops, casinos and religious facilities to 25 percent.

“I do hope that the additional restrictions serve as a reminder that now is not the time to let your guard down,” said Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa.

Baltimore restaurants, though, will be able to reopen indoor dining at 25 percent capacity.
