Governor Larry Hogan Releases Statement on 4,000 Marylanders Losing Their Lives to COVID-19
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has just released a statement after the number of COVID-19 related deaths in Maryland reached 4,000 this morning.
In his statement the Governor says:
“As of this morning, 4,000 Marylanders have lost their lives to COVID-19. On behalf of our entire state, we send our prayers and heartfelt condolences to all of their families and loved ones.
While our statewide health metrics continue to be below the nation and most other states, this tragic milestone is a sobering reminder that this crisis is by no means over. As we continue to closely monitor upticks in some of our key numbers, every single one of us must remain cautious and vigilant in the days ahead.
I ask all Marylanders to join me in a moment of silence for all those we have lost to this deadly virus.”
Yesterday, Governor Hogan renewed the current state of emergency in Maryland that was first put into place on March 5th, 2020 and renewed nine times prior to yesterday’s renewal.
