ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland reported 1,330 new COVID-19 cases and 21 deaths, according to state health department data released Thursday morning.
The percentage of people testing positive decreased slightly by .08% to 4.46%. It's the fourth day in a row that positivity decreased.
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 15, to 804. Of those hospitalized, 593 remain in acute care and 211 are in the ICU.
Since the pandemic began, there were 515, 259 total confirmed cases and 10,011 deaths. To honor the over 10,000 Marylanders lost to COVID-19 Thursday, Governor Larry Hogan directed state flags at half staff.
There are 3,823,325 Marylanders fully vaccinated. The state has administered 7,755,678 doses. Of those, 3,891,558 are first doses with 5,250 administered in the past 24 hours. They have given out 3,526,419 second doses, 6,106 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 296,906 Marylanders have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, 393 in the last day.
The state reported 82.4% 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.
