Here’s the Covid-19 pandemic report from the Georgia Department of Public Health as of 2:50 p.m., Aug. 26.

SUMMARY: After a brief dip, Covid-19 cases numbers and percentage of confirmed illnesses are on the rise in Fayette.

Fayette reported 19 new cases today, while the rates of positive confirmed tests have risen from 5.2% two days ago to 5.7% today. The two-week total is 254 new cases and 1,453 cases overall.

Meanwhile, our neighbor to the west, Coweta County, has been experiencing a sustained crush of new cases and rising positive rates just as public schools prepare to go back into session.

Its confirmed cases jumped 66 cases today to a total of 2,107 with a sizzling rate of 12.4% of positive tests over the past two weeks and 484 new cases in that same 2-week span.

The daily reports show that Coweta went from 1,503 cases on Aug. 9 to 2,014 cases by Aug. 23, a jump of over 500 new cases in 2 weeks.

By comparison, Fayette numbers went from 1,120 cases on Aug. 9 to 1,412 cases on Aug. 23, a jump of 292 cases in that same 2-week period.

Overall statewide numbers are slowing their increases, and Covid-19 designated hospital beds are no longer going up in occupancy rates. According to the Georgia Emergency Management Agency tally as of Aug. 25, 2,260 Covid-19 patients were occupying hospital beds, 90 fewer patients than the day before.

By one statistical measurement, Fayette falls significantly behind Coweta, even though Coweta has a Peachtree City’s worth of population more than Fayette. That is in fatalities attributed to Covid-19. Fayette has recorded 36 pandemic deaths while Coweta — with 34,457 more people — has seen 26 deaths, 10 fewer than Fayette.
