Tracking the number of cases over time in Maryland and Howard County:
Two odd things on the report today…
- Howard County is reporting 20 cases where the state is only reporting 19. So is the real number 191 today? Not 100% sure.
- Carroll County number yesterday was 4 cases…today it is 3 cases. Again…just odd that they went down by 1 case. I have not seen any indication as to why…but something for me to research when I have time.
