ANNAPOLIS Md. (WJZ) — Maryland reported 925 new COVID-19 cases and five new deaths, according to state health department data released Monday morning.

Doctors say the new cases are fueled by dangerous strains targeting the unvaccinated. During an August press conference, Gov. Larry Hogan said the Delta variant, a strain that is reportedly two to four times more contagious than the original virus strain, accounts for nearly every new confirmed case in Maryland.

Hogan also said less than 0.01% of vaccinated Marylanders have been hospitalized with COVID-19, and less than 0.001% of vaccinated Marylanders have died from the virus.

More than 3.6 million Maryland adults are fully vaccinated. State officials also reported that the state positivity decreased to 4.97%.

Hospitalizations increased by 51 to 698 Of those hospitalized, 538 remain in acute care and 160 remain in the ICU as of Friday.

Since the pandemic began, there were 487,893 total confirmed cases and 9,726 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 281,124 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 414 in the last day.
