Earlier this week, I posted day-by-day graphs of the Wuhan virus cases and deaths reported for Maryland by the state’s Department of Health. Here are updated charts.
First, the daily new confirmed cases—Over the past few days the curve was trending downward, but the large spike of new confirmed cases on 1 May has pushed the moving average up again.

It may have been caused by the state’s testing program finding a large at-risk population, or it there may have been a burst of new cases.
OTOH, the number of confirmed COVID-19 deaths is beginning to trend down.
