Maryland marked a milestone Thursday in its battle against the coronavirus. A total of 3,001 people in the state have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, state health officials reported Thursday morning.

"More than 65,000 Marylanders have been infected, and more than 3,000 Marylanders have now lost their lives to this deadly virus," Gov. Larry Hogan said in a statement Thursday morning. "We mourn each and every loss."

About 62.6 percent of those who died were residents of nursing homes, group homes and assisted living facilities, state data shows.

The age group with the highest number of deaths is those 80 and older, who make up 46 percent. Those 60 to 79 years old account for 40.4 percent of the state's coronavirus deaths.
