The Georgia Department of Public Health is awaiting confirmatory testing on four new presumptive positive tests for COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Georgia residents, according to a DPH media release. This testing was completed on Sunday at the Georgia Public Health Laboratory (GPHL) and the results have been submitted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for verification.
One individual is from Fulton County, another is from Cherokee County, and the other two are from Cobb County. They have no connection to each other. All of these individuals are hospitalized. The sources of their infection aren’t known.
With these four new presumptive positive cases of COVID-19, there are now six presumptive positives pending confirmatory testing by CDC. In addition, there are five confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Georgia.
The DPH reported during the weekend that the confirmed COVID-19 case at Floyd Medical Center was for a Polk County resident.
