Cdc Georgia Covid-19 Infections Are Growing, However South Georgia Hospital Is Seeing Less Severe Cases

Washington, Georgia (WALB) – A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that the respiratory virus season in the United States may have reached its peak. Notwithstanding this, the levels of the virus continue to be elevated across the country.

In particular, this is the case in the South, where the levels of COVID-19 found in wastewater are twice as high as those found in the rest of the country together.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the COVID-19 epidemic Status is “growing” in Georgia. It is estimated that the likelihood of an epidemic spreading is little less than 93%.

In recent times, there has been a gradual increase in the number of positive COVID cases, according to Dr. James Black, who works for the Phoebe Putney Health System. It’s possible that the temperature and climate of Georgia are to blame for this.

We anticipate cyclical changes in respiratory-type illnesses, but we also observe that, particularly in this region of the nation, where we are blessed with days of extremely beautiful weather, we have a tendency to go outside and assemble. In contrast, those living in the northern regions, which are characterized by colder weather, are staying indoors a great deal more than we are,” Black explained.

The black notes indicate that despite the fact that Phoebe is experiencing a greater number of cases of COVID-19, they are not experiencing as many severe cases that necessitate hospitalization.
