ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland reported 1,139 new COVID-19 cases, according to state health department data released Monday morning.

The state has not reported new deaths since Saturday because of maintenance on the Vital Statistics Administration’s Electronic Death Registration System. Officials say the reports will resume Monday evening.

The percentage of people testing positive increased slightly by .01% to 4.35%.

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 increased by 18, to 825. Of those hospitalized, 618 remain in acute care and 207 are in the ICU.

Since the pandemic began, there were 520,236 total confirmed cases and 10,035 deaths.

There are 3,844,981 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 7,799,486 doses. Of those, 3,908,751 are first doses with 3,595 administered in the past 24 hours. They have given out 3,547,159 second doses, 4,401 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 297,822 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 98 in the last day.

The state reported 82.8% 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 15,917 total cases among fully vaccinated Marylanders as of last Wednesday, Sept. 15.

Of those cases, 1,186 vaccinated Marylanders were hospitalized, representing 8.03% of all Covid cases hospitalized in the state. One hundred thirty fully vaccinated Marylanders have died, representing 7.27% of lab-confirmed Covid deaths in the state.
