AUGUSTA, Ga. – The latest statistics show Georgia’s COVID-19 cases have soared in the past week and South Carolina saw the most cases in one day since February as the super-contagious delta variant sweeps the region. State health officials reported that Georgia’s COVID-19 cases have jumped 204 percent in 14 days. On Thursday, new cases in the Peach State totaled 4,612 – the highest daily number since mid-February, according to the state Department of Public Health. Hospitalizations in Georgia have increased by about 50 percent in the past 14 days, and deaths have increased by about 18 percent in the same period. Vaccination has stalled statewide and only 40% of Georgians are fully vaccinated, the health agency said.” And that data is coming from an impaired health department apparently managed by Kemp, et al. My daughter’s half sister’s husband passed away two days ago after being placed on a ventilator. He was 43 and 20 pounds overweight . The mother and her 11 yo daughter with Downs Syndrome are currently in the hospital on oxygen The parent s never got the vaccine due to Fox News and the Republicans downplaying the Covid threat. I hold any antivaxxer personally responsible for this crap. Republicans making Covid political and Fox News are responsible as well. I know a lot of you got the vaccine but please get it if you have not. If you do not believe in vaccines I’ll go ahead and say “Good-bye” now.
