I have posted a couple of times before, but thought I would move this to its own topic. My town in Southwest Georgia is experiencing a major ramping up of COVID-19 cases.
The first death from coronavirus in our state was someone that was confirmed positive here, then moved to Atlanta where they died. Three more people, two in their 40s and one in their 70s, died here over the weekend and their bodies were sent for testing. Two have now been confirmed positive.
Our hospital has tested dozens of people but has been waiting for results. 14 results were returned this morning; 13 are positive.
The hospital is waiting on results for over 400 more tests, including “dozens of patients so serious they are hospitalized”.
Most of the cases seem to be linked to a funeral home and two churches that had large funerals.
