ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland reported 729 new COVID-19 cases and two new deaths, according to state health department data released Wednesday morning.

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 July press conference, 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 3.64%.

Hospitalizations increased by 12 to 337. Of those hospitalized, 250 remain in acute care and 87 remain in the ICU.

Since the pandemic began, there were 471,334 total confirmed cases and 9,622 deaths.

There are 3,585,152 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 7,238,304 doses. Of those, 3,653,152 are first doses with 9,850 administered in the past 24 hours. They have given out 3,310,169 second doses, 5,689 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.
