Georgia Dept. Of Health reported that as of this past weekend, there have been twelve additional deaths and more than 500 new cases of COVID-19 since the reopening of non-essential businesses such as barbershops, hair salons, and gyms.
The total shows an increase of cases since Friday, bringing the total amount of cases in Georgia to over 23,000, with a total of 904 death statewide. Of that total, 4,326 are hospitalized. The total number of deaths from coronavirus recorded is about 4 percent of the total number of cases reported.
62% of cases are between the ages of 18 and 59. People 60 and older make up 34% of the total cases, while people up to 17 years of age make up 2%.
These come after Governor Kemp's order of non essential businesses opening last week.
