ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland reported 155 new COVID-19 cases and four new deaths, according to state health department data released Monday morning. It’s the eight straight day the state has reported over 100 new cases.

Doctors say the new cases are fueled by dangerous strains targeting the unvaccinated. While some cities have reinstated mask mandates, none in Maryland are doing so at the moment.

Hospitalizations increased by one to 139. Of those hospitalized, 97 remain in acute care and 42 remain in the ICU.

Since the pandemic began, there were 464,491 total confirmed cases and 9,569 deaths.

The state began to administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine again in April, after the CDC and FDA lifted their pause on the vaccine due to a rare blood clot found in some women.

A total of 268,326 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 355 in the last day.

The state reported 76.3% of all adults in Maryland have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
