Annapolis, Md (KM) The state of Maryland has completed more than four-million COVID-19 tests. That’s according to Governor Larry Hogan, who calls it another milestone in the state’s long-term strategy against the coronavirus.
“Over the past four months, our state has built a COVID-19 infrastructure from scratch, including a successful long-term testing strategy,” the Governor says in a statement. “This unprecedented undertaking has required a tremendous amount of collaboration, including an extraordinary effort to negotiate with a foreign country. We owe a debt of gratitude to our partners–especially health care workers at all of our testing sites–who continue to help us expand our testing capabilities as we confront this new surge of the virus.”
Maryland state health officials are reminding residents to get tested for COVID–19.
