Yesterday Maryland Department of Health reported 2,220 confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Howard County and today (June 11th) the Maryland Department of Health reports 2,311 cases of COVID-19 in Howard County. That is a one day jump of 91 new cases noted in Howard County. This is the largest one day spike in new cases Howard County has experienced since the start of the reporting of this virus (previous high was 71 new cases in one day reported back on April 27th).
This can possible be explained by the increase of testing happening in Maryland and in Howard County.
Many people may not be watching new cases being reported any longer…I still think it matters. I am not going to freak out over the one day spike but it is something to continue to monitor.
It is interesting that the numbers reported by Howard County Health Department are VERY different today:
It is not odd that the numbers do not match (they rarely do) but it is odd that they are this far off today.
