The Newnan Times-Herald

The total number of COVID-19 cases in Coweta rose to 3,653 Monday, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health, with 52 new cases confirmed since Friday.

Sixty-eight Cowetans have died of the disease, including a 61-year-old man with chronic health conditions whose death was reported Thursday. According to the DPH, there were another four probable deaths* from COVID-19 as of Monday’s report.

Hospitalizations are at 177 (+2), and the confirmed case rate per 100,000 Cowetans is now 2,403 (+34).

Across Georgia, the DPH reported 422,133 cumulative cases on Monday – up 5,830 since Friday – and 8,778 total confirmed deaths, including 32 new deaths since Friday. Another 674 probable deaths* from COVID-19 in Georgia also were reported Monday.

More than 34,800 people have been admitted to Georgia hospitals for COVID-19 treatment since the health crisis began, and 6,497 of those patients have been admitted to intensive care units.

According to statistics posted by the DPH Friday, a total of 4,314,448 molecular tests for active infections have been performed at drive-thru sites and facilities statewide, with a current positive rate of 9.2 percent.**

A total of 363,107 serology tests for antibodies from previous infections have been performed statewide, with a 9.9 percent positive rate.

*This number includes individuals who are antigen positive or individuals with compatible illness and known close contact to a case that was either reported to DPH as deceased by health care providers or medical examiners/coroners, or identified by death certificates with COVID-19 indicated as the cause of death. It also includes cases in which there is evidence that COVID-19 contributed to the individual’s death OR individuals with a death certificate that has COVID-19 indicated as the cause of death and there is no laboratory evidence for SARS-CoV-2.

**The number of positive tests is not the same as the number of cases. Some tests may not be reported to DPH through electronic laboratory reporting, and numbers may include multiple tests performed on the same individual.
