Georgia hits 800 coronavirus cases, including 26 deaths

Georgia hit 800 total COVID-19 cases in the Georgia Department of Public Health’s 7 p.m. update.

The state now has 26 deaths overall.

Troup County’s total shows four, but Public District 4 Director Dr. Olugbenga Obasanjo said in a roundtable Monday morning that there are also three suspected cases. Milliken also confirmed Monday that one of its associates at the Duncan Stewart plant tested positive for COVID-19. It’s unclear whether that associate is one of the four confirmed cases or one of the three suspected cases.
