A COVID-19 Update: Baltimore Health Comm. Dr. Letitia Dzirasa
Maryland reports sharp declines in COVID-19 infections, but Baltimore remains a hotspot.
We begin today by keeping you up to date with the ever-changing news about the Coronavirus. Last Thursday, Governor Larry Hogan announced that Maryland led the nation in lowering the number of COVID-19 cases, and that our state had the lowest transmission rate in the country.
