At noon on Saturday, April 25, 2020, the Georgia Department of Public Health was reporting 22,695 cases of COVID-19, with 4,326 hospitalized and 904 deaths. That’s just 5 deaths, 204 new cases and 4 new hospitalizations overnight. Walton County is still reporting 92 cases and three deaths. Gwinnett County is reporting 1,421 cases and 46 deaths. Last night’s count in the Governor’s list of COVID-19 patients at Walton County nursing homes and long-term care facilities was the Retreat in Loganville’s Pearl Alzheimer’s nine cases and three deaths. The Retreat at Loganville was still reporting one case and Park Place in Monroe was reporting eight cases relating to residents and one case relating to a staff member.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations revised the projections that all the states are working off of on Friday last week and Georgia was then  projected to have already peaked at 100 deaths per day (which was recorded on April 7, 2020.) Georgia’s peak use of resources was projected to have been on April 15, and the state’s total deaths expected topped out at 1,369  by June 1. After 88 deaths were recorded on April 20, the projected peak date has been revised and is now given as April 28 and the projected total deaths by June 13 has been adjusted up to 2,254. Georgia still has 100% of hospital beds as well as ICU beds needed but is now projected to be almost 500 short on ventilators.
