Below is a DPH chart of deaths that have occurred in Fayette County since the start of the pandemic:

"<b

Total test-confirmed cases statewide: 29,560, which is 515 more than the previous day’s total of 29,045, an increase of 1.7%. As of April 5, only 1 of Georgia’s 159 counties is not reporting any coronavirus cases: Glascock, west of Augusta in eastern Georgia .

Statewide deaths: 1,258, an increase of 66 fatalities over the previous day’s total of 1,192. (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.)

State Covid-19 death rate: 4.2% of all confirmed cases reported, slightly over 4 deaths for every 100 test-confirmed cases.

Fayette County: Confirmed infections  —  185 cases (3 fewer confirmed cases than the previous day’s 188; no explanation of decrease) with 10 deaths. Fayette’s confirmed case rate: 157.39 cases per 100,000 persons. Hospitalizations: 35, no change from the previous day.

Coweta County: Confirmed infections  — 243 (9 more than previous day’s 234) with 4 deaths. Coweta’s confirmed case rate: 159.87 cases per 100,000 persons. Hospitalizations: 38, no change from the previous day.

Hospitalized: 5,574 cumulative total of all Covid-19 hospitalizations statewide from the beginning of the pandemic to today, which is 18.8% of the total cumulative confirmed cases to date, compared to 5,429 cumulative total one day earlier, an increase of 145 newly hospitalized patients (increase of 2.6% 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. The upshot is that we know how many people have been hospitalized since the pandemic began, but we know nothing from these figures about how many hospital beds are being occupied today. Thus, we don’t know from DPH public reporting how many empty beds are available for new patients, a critically important metric.

Total coronavirus tests:  200,814 by private and state labs, which represents 17,812 (9.7%) more tests than the 183,002 tests in the previous report.

Total positive tests:  29,560 confirmations so far with all testing from both commercial and state labs, a positive confirmation rate of 14.7% of the total tests administered, the lowest percentage so far. The positive confirmation rate is closer to 1 out of 7, meaning that 6 out of every 7 tests shows no presence of coronavirus.
