[03/24/20 – 7PM] COVID-19 Cases in Georgia: 1097 Confirmed, 361 Hospitalized, 38 Deaths

The latest data from DPH now includes how many people are in hospitals across Georgia.

Information as of 7:00 P.M. – March 24, 2020

These data represent confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported to the Georgia Department of Public Health as of 7:00pm 03/24/2020. A confirmed case is defined as a person who has tested positive for 2019 novel coronavirus.


Today’s significant increase in cases is in part reflective of improvement in electronic reporting efficiency from commercial laboratories. These reports often have sparse patient data and DPH will be working to complete these records, so data will change over time.


 

This map of Georgia shows the distribution of confirmed COVID-19 cases by county. The highest rates are in and around the metro Atlanta area, with 191 confirmed cases in Fulton County, 107 confirmed cases in DeKalb County and 90 confirmed cases in Cobb County.
