Wednesday’s COVID-19 Numbers for Montgomery: 124 New Cases, One Death

Montgomery County COVID-19 Statistics

The Maryland Department of Health reported 124 new COVID-19 cases in Montgomery County Wednesday morning. The county’s cumulative case count is 25,562.

The county has a rolling seven-day average of 2.95% for positive COVID-19 tests, which is a lower rate than 15 of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions.

There was one COVID-19 related fatality reported Wednesday, bringing the pandemic death toll in the county to 830. Prince George’s County leads the state in fatalities with 835 –  five more than Montgomery County – but has over 7,000 more coronavirus cases in total since March. Montgomery County has 40 probable COVID-19 deaths that have not been laboratory confirmed, while P.G. County has 24.

 

Montgomery County health officials announced they are closely monitoring the increase in coronavirus infections over the last few weeks. The county is primarily focusing on three public health metrics — including daily case rate, test positivity rate, and the rate of transmission — to determine if any activities currently allowed in Phase 2 of Reopening Montgomery need to be rolled back to reduce the risk of transmission.

Each metric is evaluated daily to determine the associated risk of transmission.  Wednesday, the daily case rate indicates high risk, the test positivity rate indicates a low risk, and the percent change in cases indicates a very high risk of transmission.
