Due to a ransomware attack, the coronavirus.maryland.gov site has been unable to fully report updated data since Saturday, Dec. 4.
On Feb. 16, the state reported that 24,838 COVID-19 reinfections, dating to late September, were added to the confirmed cases total. A total of 481 cases were reported from Feb. 15 to Feb. 16. State officials said an additional 1,436 cases in the confirmed cases total represent cases that had been previously counted and are now classified as reinfections.
The state occasionally revises data on deaths attributed to COVID-19 as amendments to the death record are received. That can sometimes result in deaths being removed from the total.
No deaths were reported on Sept. 18 or Sept. 19 due to maintenance on the Vital Statistics Administration’s Electronic Death Registration System, the state announced. The deaths reported Sept. 21 reflected three days’ totals.
The state announced on May 27 that 517 deaths previously not classified as being caused by COVID-19 have been added to the statewide total after “an information reconciliation process.”
