Both the city of Alpharetta and the city of Milton have seen fewer than 100 cases of COVID-19, according to the latest epidemiology report from the Fulton County Board of Health.

The latest report came out May 18, and it is unclear when the next report will be released. Community Impact Newspaper has reached out to the Fulton County Board of Health for clarification, but the board did not immediately respond to the request.

The epidemiology report shows that Alpharetta has seen 94 cases of coronavirus as of May 18, while Milton has seen 64 cases as of May 18. Meanwhile, the cities of Roswell, Sandy Springs and Johns Creek have seen 205 cases, 308 cases and 110 cases, respectively. Atlanta and South Fulton have seen the most cases among cities in Fulton County, the epidemiology report shows, with 1,731 cases in Atlanta and 433 cases in South Fulton.

According to the Georgia Department of Public Health's COVID-19 daily status report, released 9 a.m. May 22, Fulton County has seen 3,893 cases of coronavirus and 193 deaths attributed to the virus. An epidemiology report for May 22 was not available as of publication May 22.



The GDPH's data also shows a statewide case total of 41,127 cases as of 9 a.m. May 22, a 2.42% increase from yesterday's total of 40,157 cases.



The number of total COVID-19 tests administered statewide also increased by 5.7% since 9 a.m. May 21 to 427,249 tests as of 9 a.m. May 22; however, the number of total tests includes both viral tests, which are used to determine if a person is currently infected with COVID-19, and serology tests, which are antibody tests that can indicate if a person has contracted COVID-19 in the past.

The GDPH is working to provide specific counts of each test, but this information has not yet been provided. Community Impact Newspaper reached out to the GDPH on May 22 to determine the number of serology tests for May 22.
