ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WDVM) — Almost all of the COVID case data on the Maryland Department of Health’s (MDH) website was restored on Monday after the department was hit by a hack in early December, forcing the organization to shut down its website.
MDH reported that “90% of state-level surveillance data for confirmed cases, persons tested negative, testing volume and positivity rate are restored.” The website had previously been restored on Dec. 6 following the shutdown, and the vaccine and hospitalization dashboards were restored in the days that followed.
24-hour changes will resume on Tuesday. The COVID reporting ability of the website had not been updated since Dec. 4. Updated data can be viewed here.
