The graphs below represents a Fayette County report of cases over time in the first graph, and Fayette deaths over time just below that.


Graphs below show statewide cases over time and Covid-19 deaths over time. According to DPH, the Covid-19 cases over time “is meant to aid understanding whether the outbreak is growing, leveling off, or declining and can help to guide the Covid-19 response.”


Below is a new DPH chart of Covid-19-related deaths that have occurred in Fayette County since the start of the pandemic. The chart still lists a total of 13 deaths, but the new information added for the first time in this report is the race of the victim.

The new information is stark and startling. Of the 13 fatalities attributed to Covid-19 as primary cause of death in Fayette since the start of the pandemic, 8 (62%) are African-American and 5 (38%) are white. That’s in a county in which the black population is under 25% of the total population, according to 2017 Census estimates.

Here’s the breakdown: 6 black males and 2 black women died from Covid-19, while 3 white women and 2 white males succumbed to the virus. The age disparity is also noteworthy. The youngest victims were African-American, as was the oldest. Four of the victims were under age 70, and all were black. No Fayette fatality of either race was under 64. Three of the 5 white deaths were age 80 or above. The other 2 were mid-70s.

The chart lists from left to right the age of the victim, the race, the sex, the county, and yes or no or unknown as to whether the victim had an underlying medical condition:


Total test-confirmed cases statewide: 48,207 which is 589 more cases than the previous day’s total of 47,618, an increase of 1.2%. All of Georgia’s 159 counties are now reporting coronavirus cases. For perspective, more testing results in more cases being reported, which does not necessarily indicate whether a pandemic is increasing or decreasing in intensity.

Statewide deaths: 2,102, an increase of 28 fatalities over the previous day’s total of 2,074.

State Covid-19 death rate: 4.3% of all confirmed cases reported, slightly over 4 deaths for every 100 test-confirmed cases.

Fayette County: Confirmed infections  — 237 cases (2 new cases more than the 235 cases reported on the previous day) with 13 deaths. Fayette’s confirmed case rate: 201.63 cases per 100,000 persons. Fayette death rate per 100,000 population: 11.1. Hospitalizations: 38 (1 more than the previous day).

Coweta County: Confirmed infections  — 422 (4 more new cases than the previous day’s 418) with 9 deaths. Coweta’s confirmed case rate: 277.63 cases per 100,000 persons. Coweta death rate per 100,000 population: 5.9. Hospitalizations: 52 (1 more than the previous report).

Hospitalized: 8,334 cumulative total of all Covid-19 hospitalizations statewide from the beginning of the pandemic to today, which is 17.2% of the total cumulative confirmed cases to date, compared to 8,127 cumulative total one day earlier, an increase of 207 newly hospitalized patients (increase of 2.5% 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.

Intensive care unit admissions: 1,821, which is 21 more new ICU patients than the previous day’s report of 1,800 across all reporting hospitals in Georgia.

Total coronavirus tests: 565,612 by private and state labs, which represents 2,797 (0.4%) more tests than the 562,815 tests in the previous report.

Total positive tests:  48,207 confirmations so far with all testing from both commercial and state labs, a positive confirmation rate of 8.5% of the total tests administered. The positive confirmation rate is now less than 1 out of 10, meaning that more than 9 out of every 10 tests shows no presence of coronavirus.
