The state’s positivity rate went down slightly to 5.61% The state conducted 33,132 coronavirus tests in the last day.

Since the pandemic began in the state there have been 436,028 confirmed COVID-19 cases.  At this time, 8,376 Marylanders have died.

As of Sunday morning, there are 1,601,331 Marylanders fully vaccinated for the virus. The state has administered 3,890,224 doses so far. Of those, 2,288,893 are first doses, with 23,544 administered in the last day. They have administered 1,421,675 second doses, with 23,544 in the last day.

CORONAVIRUS RESOURCES: 

The state administered a total of 176,161 single-dose vaccines before the Johnson & Johnson shot was paused.

Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Letitia Dzirasa said the cases are trending younger, and that it’s a combination of COVID fatigue, more people going out and socializing and the variants.

Doctors at Johns Hopkins say nationwide, COVID cases and COVID-related deaths plateaued this week. Still, though, 20 states are reporting increases in infection rates, Maryland being one of them.

“The fact that we started vaccinating oldest Americans, means that younger Americans are less protected from this virus by the vaccine. We have to remember that while advanced age may be the biggest risk factor for severe illness, it’s not the only risk factor,” said Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo, epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins.

Baltimore is averaging 244 new coronavirus cases every day, which is up 140% from where we were a month ago.

“There’s a significant increase in mobility. So, when we look at the mobility of city residents, they’re moving and mobile at pre-pandemic levels,” Dr. Dzirasa said.

Most Baltimore venues are only open at 50% capacity. Dr. Dzirasa said it wouldn’t necessarily help to impose tighter restrictions right now.

“I don’t think it’s the city acting alone, it really would require a regional or statewide approach just because how mobile our residents are right now,” Dr. Dzirasa said.

Twenty percent of city residents are fully vaccinated.

This weekend, Mayor Brandon Scott along with Sen. Chris Van Hollen said that doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods.

“We are losing almost three people a day to COVID in Baltimore City. This is not over yet,” Mayor Scott said.
