Since the pandemic began, there were 472,224 total confirmed cases and 9,626 deaths.
Doctors said the new cases are fueled by strains targeting the unvaccinated. During a press conference this month, 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.
