The Newnan Times-Herald

The total number of COVID-19 cases in Coweta rose to 3,779 Friday, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health, with 104 new cases confirmed since Dec. 1.

Seventy Cowetans have died of the disease, including an 89-year-old woman with no chronic health conditions whose death was reported Wednesday and a 63-year-old woman with chronic health conditions whose death was reported Friday. According to the DPH, there are another four probable deaths* from COVID-19 as of Friday’s report.

Hospitalizations are at 184 (+6), and the confirmed case rate per 100,000 Cowetans is now 2,486 (+69).

Across Georgia, the DPH reported 438,300 cumulative cases on Friday and 8,922 total confirmed deaths, including 331 new deaths since Dec. 1. Another 803 probable deaths* from COVID-19 in Georgia also were reported Friday.

More than 35,700 people have been admitted to Georgia hospitals for COVID-19 treatment since the health crisis began, and 6,642 of those patients have been admitted to intensive care units.

According to statistics posted by the DPH Friday, a total of 4,435,020 molecular tests for active infections have been performed at drive-thru sites and facilities statewide, with a current positive rate of 9.3 percent.**

A total of 368,962 serology tests for antibodies from previous infections have been performed statewide, with a 10 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.

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 64.6 million people have been sickened by COVID-19 in 235 countries, areas and territories, and more than 1.5 million have died, according to the WHO.

More than 272,500 COVID-19-related deaths and more than 13.8 million confirmed infections have been reported in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
