At the time of this post, Maryland has 4,045 cases of COVID-19.
In the past 24 hours there was an increase of 436 cases. Each day the cases rise in number rapidly, and Governor Hogan has issued a Stay at Home Order that specifies “No Maryland resident should be leaving their home unless it is for an essential job or for an essential reason, such as obtaining food or medicine, seeking urgent medical attention, or for other necessary purposes.”
Regardless, the number of cases continues to rise across all age groups in every county in the state of Maryland. With the increase in cases comes an increase in deaths as well. Even if one is young, they are not immune to this virus. Nor are they safe from spreading the virus to others, especially people who are immuno-comprised and/or in an older age group. The latter is of special importance. The spread is the most deadly aspect, because even if one exhibits no symptoms, the spread continues.
Please remember to stay at home unless necessary as Governor Hogan has directed, for both your, and your loved ones’ safety and health.
