Oconee and Oglethorpe counties each added a death attributed to COVID-19 in the Monday Daily Status Report issued by the Georgia Department of Health, bringing the total number of reported deaths from the disease in each of the counties to seven.
Oconee County’s death was of a female, described as 90 plus years of age and with chronic conditions, while the Oglethorpe death was of a 70-year-old male without known chronic conditions.
The two deaths bring to 66 the number of COVID-19 deaths in the 10-county Northeast Health District of the Department of Public Health and increase the seven-day rolling average of added deaths to 1.4 from 1.2 on Sunday.
The Daily Status Report added 18 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Northeast Health District with the 1 p.m. Monday Daily Status Report, increasing the seven-day rolling average of cases to 37.1 from 36.6 on Sunday and continuing the upward moving of added cases over the last week.
The upward movement in both cases and deaths at the regional level in Monday’s report is reflective of statewide trends in the data from the Daily Status Report.
