Gov. Hogan confirms two more coronavirus cases in Maryland

After confirming last week that there were three cases of coronavirus in Maryland, Gov. Larry Hogan says that the state is now confirming two additional cases.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Gov. Larry Hogan says that Maryland is dealing with two more confirmed cases of the coronavirus. In all, five people have coronavirus in the state. 

The two additional cases include a woman in her 80s from Hartford County who contracted the virus while overseas and a Montgomery County man in his 60s who contracted the virus while also traveling abroad.

The announcement on Sunday comes after three people were confirmed to have the virus last week in Montgomery County, and after Hogan released a statement Saturday saying someone who attended CPAC at the end of February, also had the virus. 

"State officials have identified two additional positive cases of novel coronavirus in Maryland. Our state now has five total confirmed cases, and 62 negative tests for COVID-19," said Hogan, who will hold a news conference on Monday.

Hogan said the original three Montgomery County patients include a married couple in their 70s and a woman in her 50s, all of whom traveled together. All three patients are in good condition and are in quarantine, according to Hogan.
