Dozens of people have tested positive for coronavirus at a nursing home in the suburbs west of Baltimore, Maryland’s governor announced late Saturday as the state’s death toll from the virus has doubled.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said the state has experienced a “tragic coronavirus outbreak” at Pleasant View Nursing Home in Mount Airy, about 30 miles west of downtown Baltimore.

“As we have been warning for weeks, older Marylanders and those with underlying health conditions are more vulnerable and at a significantly higher risk of contracting this disease,” Hogan said in a statement.
