Maryland Department of Health is reporting 57 confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Maryland on March 17th. This is a jump of 20 confirmed cases from what was reported on March 16th. Here are the numbers by county:
- 24 in Montgomery County
- 14 in Prince George’s County
- 6 in Baltimore County
- 3 Howard County
- 3 Anne Arundel County
- 2 in Harford County
- 1 Charles County
- 1 Carroll County
- 1 Baltimore City
- 1 Talbot County
- 1 Frederick County
Now I am not sure how valid these numbers are this morning. We have been told that there are actually 4 cases in Howard County now…and…Baltimore City has reported a second case (so maybe the real number is 59 today).
Not sure why these numbers from the state do not reflect what has been reported…but something to watch going forward.

The Washington Post has some interesting (albeit not totally up to date) tracking information for the DMV area (https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/local/dc-maryland-virginia-coronavirus-cases/?itid=lk_inline_manual_4)
