Coweta County has reported six new deaths from COVID-19 since Friday, according to the Georgia Department of Health.

The deaths of a 69-year-old woman with no known chronic health conditions and an 85-year-old woman, an 83-year-old man and a woman in her 90s – all of whose chronic health conditions were listed as “unknown” – were reported Saturday and Sunday.

On Monday, the DPH reported two more deaths in Coweta, those of an 84-year-old man with chronic health conditions and a 54-year-old male with no known medical issues that could have contributed to his death.

Fourteen new deaths from COVID-19 have been reported in Coweta since the beginning of September, bringing the total number to 40.

The total number of COVID-19 cases in Coweta rose to 2,412 Monday, up from 2,379 on Friday, according to the DPH.

Coweta’s hospitalizations rose to 113 – up one from Friday – and the case rate per 100,000 Cowetans is now 1,586 (+21), according to the DPH’s Friday data report.

Across Georgia, the DPH reported 295,337 cumulative cases on Monday – an increase of 4,556 since Friday – and 6,246 total deaths, including 315 new deaths since Friday.

More than 26,300 people have been admitted to Georgia hospitals for COVID-19 treatment since the health crisis began, and more than 4,800 of those patients have been admitted to intensive care units.

According to statistics posted by the DPH Monday, a total of 2,615,247 molecular tests for active infections have been performed at drive-thru sites and facilities statewide, with a current positive rate of 10.3 percent.*

A total of 290,730 serology tests for antibodies from previous infections have been performed statewide, with an 8 percent positive rate.

The disease in the U.S. and worldwide

COVID–19 is the disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which was identified after health officials reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, to the World Health Organization in late 2019.

Since then, more than 28.9 million people have been sickened by COVID–19 in 216 countries, areas and territories, and more than 922,000 have died, according to the WHO.

More than 193,000 COVID-19-related deaths and 6.5 million confirmed infections have been reported in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which reported 35,549 new U.S. cases and 510 new deaths between Sunday and Monday.
