Around 2750 cases in Maryland, with 42 deaths.  So the death rate here is between 1 and 2%.

 

People are only counted as "cases" if they have a positive test.  Currently, most people in the US only get tested if they have symptoms and seek medical attention.  But many/most infected people have no symptoms or only mild symptoms, and do not get tested.  Thus, the true mortality rate is estimated to be well below 1% for all COVID-19 infections.
