Maryland is one of the states that conduct most coronavirus diagnostic tests in the country.
Up to date, they’ve tested over million people, confirmed the Governor Larry Hogan late Wednesday night.
The exact number of conducted COVID-19 tests in this state is 1,000,179, and the testing process started at the beginning of the pandemic, back in the days when New York was the virus epicenter.
The department of Health had reported at least 80,172 cases of coronavirus in Maryland, while 3,276 people have lost their lives due to COVID-19 infection.
According to Hogan, “This crisis is not over and your actions may help determine whether we see a resurgence of the virus in Maryland.”
The Governor is encouraging the local population to respect the protective measures, wear masks, and keep social distancing.
We have a shared responsibility to fight the novel virus, and public health depends on all of us.
While Maryland puts the focus on testing people, Missouri reports the highest increase in coronavirus cases in a single day, 1,301 new infections.
This number sums up to a total of 36,063. The Missouri Department of Health officials tweeted, “This month, we have been experiencing an increase in both testing and positive cases.
The increase has caused a backlog of data processing and entry at the state level. Our team is working diligently to address our backlog with the support of newly-trained team members.”
