(Note: Weekend reporting has shown some lag in the past with fewer reported numbers compared to weekday reports, whereas early week reports show some catch-up of lagging reports.)

Hospitalized: 4,948 cumulative total of all Covid-19 hospitalizations statewide from the beginning of the pandemic to today, which is 19.5% of the total cumulative confirmed cases to date, compared to 4,778 cumulative total one day earlier, an increase of 170 newly hospitalized patients (increase of 3.5% over the previous day) across the state of Georgia. The data  do not indicate how many patients that were admitted on previous days are actually still being treated in hospitals today.

Total coronavirus tests:  140,223 by private and state labs, which represents 13,054 (10.2%) more tests than the 127,169 tests in the previous report.

Total positive tests:  25,274 confirmations so far with all testing from both commercial and state labs, a positive confirmation rate of 18% of the total tests administered. Roughly 1 out of every 5 tests administered comes back with a positive reading on the presence of coronavirus, meaning 4 out of 5 persons tested had no sign of the coronavirus.
