Latest Coronavirus Cases: New Patients in Wicomico, Sussex Counties

In our Wednesday update from state health officials in Delaware, Maryland Virginia, there were luckily limited new cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to report on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Wicomico County is the only county on Maryland’s Eastern Shore reporting new cases in the last 48 hours. A woman in her 80’s is being treated for COVID-19, bringing the county’s total number of cases to five. Officials also provided an update to say the first three patients being treated are in good condition.

Both Delaware counties down state are reporting new cases, with 12 total cases in Kent County and 24 total cases in Sussex County.

There are 115 total cases in Delaware, 423 total cases in Maryland and 391 total cases in Virginia. Maryland’s total is skewered because state officials report only once a day, while cases confirmed after that time period don’t get reported until the next day.
