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.

“The vaccines are without a doubt our single most effective tool to mitigate the threat of COVID-19 and the surging Delta variant, and Maryland’s vaccination rate continues to outpace the nation,” Hogan said.

More than 3.8 million Maryland adults are fully vaccinated.

Hospitalizations decreased by 13, to 809. Of those hospitalized, 595 remain in acute care and 214 are in the ICU.

Since the pandemic began, there were 510,543 total confirmed cases and 9,951 deaths.

There are 3,801,903 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 7,675,638 doses. Of those, 3,873,735 are first doses with 6,134 administered in the past 24 hours. They have given out 3,506,688 second doses, 6,089 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.

A total of 295,194 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 2,021 in the last day.

The state reported 82.1% of all adults in Maryland have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

In August, the state launched a post-vaccination infections dashboard that is updated every Wednesday. There have been 14,006 total cases among fully vaccinated Marylanders as of last Sunday, Sept. 5.

Of those cases, 1,060 vaccinated Marylanders were hospitalized, representing 7.4% of all Covid cases hospitalized in the state. One hundred fully vaccinated Marylanders have died, representing 6% of lab-confirmed Covid deaths in the state.
