ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland reported 303 new COVID-19 cases and six new deaths, according to state health department data released Thursday morning. It’s the tenth 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.

During a press conference earlier this month, Gov. Larry Hogan said unvaccinated Marylanders accounted for 100% of covid-related deaths in June, 95% of all new cases and 93% of hospitalizations.

More than 3.5 million Maryland adults are fully vaccinated. State officials also reported that the state positivity went up to 1.65%.

Hospitalizations increased by six to 152. Of those hospitalized, 102 remain in acute care and 44 remain in the ICU.

Since the pandemic began, there were 465,038 total confirmed cases and 9,579 deaths.

As of Wednesday, there are 3,513,599 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 7,075,362 doses. Of those, 3,561,763 are first doses with 5,881 administered in the past 24 hours. They have given out 3,244,925 second doses, 7,356 in the last day.

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.
