The Maryland Department of Health on Thursday reported 91 new COVID-19 cases in Montgomery County, bringing the total to 20,281 since the first case was reported in March.

With a lower rate than 12 of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions, the county had a rolling seven-day average of 2.79% for positive COVID-19 tests.

Montgomery County has led the state in coronavirus-related fatalities, but no new deaths were reported since Monday, so the pandemic total remains 782. Prince George’s County, however, has led the state in coronavirus infections with a current count of 26,565.

I'm glad there is an abundance of testing sites in Montgomery County, Roy!  Testing is an important component to getting Covid 19 under control.  Still, I think life will begin with a vaccine!

A key model predicts the US will see 410,000 Covid-19 deaths by January, less than a year after the coronavirus established itself on American soil. A lot can happen before then, but experts aren’t confident we’ll have a vaccine ready by Election Day. President Trump has repeatedly put pressure on the FDA to furnish a vaccine by then, but doctors say even a highly effective vaccine -- one that could blow through clinical trials -- probably wouldn’t be available until December. Around the world, Brazil has surpassed 4 million coronavirus cases, and New Zealand has recorded its first Covid-19 death in more than three months.
