Oconee and Clarke counties each add two new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the noon Daily Status Report released Sunday by the Georgia Department of Public Health, contributing to the 11 new cases added in the 10-county Northeast Health District.
The 11 new cases are the same number as the Northeast Health District added a week ago–on Easter Sunday–and are an increase over the seven new cases added in the noon Daily Status Report on Saturday.
Across the last three weeks of the report, data released by the Department of Public Health have varied systematically by day of the week, with weekend reports listing fewer cases than reports released during the week.
The rolling or moving average across the last seven days for the Northeast Health Region shows the addition of 23.9 cases, a figure that has been steady since the release of the Department of Public Health Report on Friday.
The state of Georgia added 632 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the 24-hour period ending at noon on Sunday, compared with only 293 added on Easter Sunday. The rolling average for the state is 835.6 cases per day, up from a rolling average of 787.1 on Saturday.
The Department of Public Health Daily Status report listed 14 new deaths at noon on Sunday, up from the five reported a week ago. The rolling average for the last seven days is 36.3, up from the rolling average of 35.0 on Saturday.
The total number of deaths in the state attributable to the Novel Coronavirus is 687, and for the Northeast Region it is 24, the same as on Saturday.
The state logged 5,745 new tests for the COVID-19 disease with the noon Daily Status Report on Sunday, the largest number of new tests recorded since figures on tests were first released on March 18.

Chart 3 below summarizes the cumulative data from the state of Georgia on four indicators: number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, number of deaths attributed to COVID-19, number of tests for the disease, and number of hospitalizations for treatment of the disease.
The charts begin on March 2, when the first cases were discovered in Atlanta. Measures of tests and hospitalizations are included from the point at which the Daily Status Report provided those data.
