Walton County is reporting 2 deaths and 3 cases
At 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 11, 2020, Georgia was reporting 432 deaths with 12,261 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 2491 hospitalized. Walton County is now reporting 38 active cases. The Georgia Department of Health is still just reporting the two deaths in Walton County as a result of COVID-19, both males in their 70s with unknown underlying cases. The Retreat at Loganville (formerly Southern Plantations) reported the death of one of its residents Friday of COVID-19, but that is not yet being reported by the state. Gwinnett County is reporting 681 cases with 18 deaths so far from COVID-19.
About a week ago, if we are not able to flatten the curve Georgia was projected to peak on April 26 with 96 deaths a day due to COVID-19. Georgia is now projected to peak on April 27 at 94 deaths a day. 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. At this time, Georgia is projected to lose 3,564 people to COVID-19 by Aug. 4. You can keep up with it by taping on this link each day and turning to Georgia for the update.
