Georgia Surpassed 300,000 Confirmed Coronavirus Infections

September 18, 2020

ATLANTA — Georgia has surpassed 300,000 confirmed coronavirus infections amid indications a decline in new cases may be leveling out.

As of Thursday, Georgia is close to 301,000 confirmed virus cases, with 6,474 deaths from COVID-19.

Authorities say Georgia’s numbers remain mostly headed in the right direction, although the seven-day rolling average of new cases has drifted up for several days. Georgia ranks 12th among U.S. states in most new cases per capita in the past 14 days, according to data kept by The Associated Press.

Epidemiologist Amber Schmidtke says infections “seem to have hit a leveling point” in the recent downward trend, adding that “we need more time to know.”
