On June 23 there were 1,872 new coronavirus cases in Georgia. That broke the record of 1,598 on April 7. (Maybe the only good news is the seven-day average of new deaths is, near-ish to it’s lowest point since the outbreak began in earnest?)
You will recall, the day after setting the new-cases peak in April, the collective will of our state’s political leadership was spurred into action to combat the spread of Covid-19.
By Memorial Day we decided: “eh, we’ve had enough.”
Since May 27, 713 Georgians have died of Coronavirus out of a total of 2,646.
For comparison’s sake: either 1,581 or 1,125 Georgians died during the Vietnam War.
We really need to be ashamed of ourselves.
