I’ve put together a couple of different county-based map visualizations to show recent trends in cases. I also have another page with additional resources for local information about coronavirus in your county or region.
I also have a Daily Changes by County page showing the Daily New Cases, Hospitalizations, and Death for each county in Georgia. You can click on a county on the map or use a sortable table with all counties and their data.
Two Week Case Rate & Positivity Percentage
Georgia doesn’t track recoveries, but the map below shows the two-week case rate (cases per 100K) for cases reported to GA DPH in the past two weeks. This is based on confirmed (PCR) cases only. It does not include antigen tests, since we don’t have two full weeks of data yet. Click on the legend to highlight the counties in that range. Click on a county to see the number of new cases reported in the past two weeks, as well as the two-week case rate per 100K.
You can also see the 2-week % Positivity based on the labs collected within the past two weeks. The percentage as well as the total number of tests collected per county is shown. Be aware that the fewer number of tests collected, the less reliable the percent positivity number is. (In small counties where very few tests are performed, this rate can be skewed.)
Daily Average New Cases
I had a request for a graph of daily average new cases by county. This uses ranges similar to the “Key Metrics for COVID Suppression” by Harvard Global Health Institute, although I chose not to include counties with 5 or fewer cases per week. I also divided the bottom two categories into <5 and 5-10 instead of <1 and 1-10. I may revisit this in the future, but wanted to provide some more distinction among counties with lower daily case counts. Many organizations use this metric as a goal post for removing restrictions.
NOTE: There was a dump of antigen cases on 11/10 that are inflating these total numbers, particularly in the metro Atlanta area, until the 11/17 data is reported.
Case Change Trends (Week-over-Week)
I use a sliding color range to discrete groups to better show the size of case changes per county. Dark green counties have case counts that decreased by a lot, and dark red counties have case counts that increased by a lot. Counties with little to no changes week-over-week are light gray.
The maps below are designed to show you where confirmed (PCR) cases have increased or decreased from the previous week. It does not include antigen tests yet, since we don’t have two full weeks of data yet.
- View the map by raw number of case change per county or the case change per 100K for each county.
- Click on the legend to highlight the counties in that range.
- Click on a county to see the number of new cases in the past 7 days, as well as the change from the previous 7 days.
