South Korea Helps Maryland

The governor said he and first lady Yumi Hogan made a personal plea in Korean to South Korea’s ambassador to the U.S. on March 28. He said they spoke of the “special relationship” between Maryland and the Republic of Korea. That call set in motion 22 days of vetting and negotiations.

As of Monday, morning, Maryland has at least 13,684 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 516 confirmed deaths. More numbers here. The governor said Maryland has expanded testing capability by over 5,000% and has completed more than 71,000 tests to date. Last week, the state secured an additional 40,000 tests and the state invested $2.5 million to help the University of Maryland-Baltimore lab handle up to 20,000 tests per day, Hogan said.
