The state has also seen 1,630 ICU admissions, 7,171 hospitalizations and 1,697 deaths attributed to the virus, data shows.
Fulton County saw a decrease of two cases from the update at 7 p.m. May 19 to 7 p.m. May 20, but it is unclear in the report why a decrease in case counts could occur. The county has now seen 3,793 cases of COVID-19 as well as 174 deaths and 735 hospitalizations attributed to the virus, according to the GDPH's data.
All data points from the GDPH's COVID-19 daily status report are based on available information at the time of the report and may not reflect current case status, as there is lag time between when the case was tested and/or reported and submitted to the GDPH. Delays vary based on the testing facility and/or jurisdiction of the facility, according to the report.
Additionally, data from May 7 to present day falls within what the department refers to in the report as the 14-day window, in which confirmed cases may not be accounted for due to illnesses yet to be reported or test results that could still be pending. Any data from May 7-20 is considered preliminary.
