At 7 p.m, Thursday, April 16, 2020, Georgia was reporting 617 deaths with 16,368 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 3,260 hospitalized. The Georgia Department of Health was still reporting 56 active cases and three deaths in Walton County as a result of COVID-19 – three males, and 87-year-old man with an underlying condition and– the two males in their 70s with unknown underlying conditions.
Gwinnett County is reporting 917 cases with 32 deaths so far from COVID-19.
According to the projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations that all the states are working off, Georgia is now only projected to peak between May 1 – 3 with 91 deaths a day due to COVID-19. These projections include a total of 3,718 total deaths in Georgia by June 26 when no more people are projected to die from this virus during this season. The state has managed to make up hospital beds and is no longer recording a shortage of those, but it is still short on ICU beds and ventilators if we stay on this current trajectory.
