ANNAPOLIS, Md. – As of Friday morning, the state of Maryland had a total of 774 confirmed cases of coronavirus, which is an increase of 425 in the last three days.
Across the National Capital Region, including Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C., there are now more than 1,500 confirmed cases. This is 4.5 times more than there were one week ago.
“Over the last three days, the number of COVID-19 cases in Maryland has more than doubled. Cases in the National Capital Region have more than quadrupled over the last week alone. There is no timetable and no model that can tell us exactly how long this will last or how bad this is going to get,” Hogan said in a statement.
“I cannot stress this enough: Marylanders need to stay in place at home to slow the spread of this deadly virus.”
