MD COVID-19 - Total Confirmed Deaths Statewide

Metadata Updated: April 12, 2024

Note: Starting April 27, 2023 updates change from daily to weekly.

Summary The cumulative number of confirmed COVID-19 deaths among Maryland residents.

Description The MD COVID-19 - Total Confirmed Deaths Statewide data layer is a collection of the statewide confirmed COVID-19 related deaths that have been reported each day by the Vital Statistics Administration. A death is classified as confirmed if the person had a laboratory-confirmed positive COVID-19 test result. Some data on deaths may be unavailable due to the time lag between the death, typically reported by a hospital or other facility, and the submission of the complete death certificate. Probable deaths are available from the MD COVID-19 - Total Probable Deaths Statewide data layer. Update 5/27/21: The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Vital Statistics Administration (VSA) revised the state’s COVID-19 data to include deaths that were not properly classified by medical certifiers over the past year. VSA identified these deaths as COVID-19 deaths through an information reconciliation process utilizing other sources of data.
