COVID-19 cases in Cobb County are averaging 387 per day as of Tuesday, according to the state Department of Public Health. Daily case numbers have declined since last Monday, when the county was averaging 492 new cases per day.
Deaths remain high, however, as they lag behind a few weeks when cases surge. The county has been hovering at about three deaths per day. In the last surge, in January, that average reached five or six deaths per day for more than a month.
The story is similar statewide: average daily cases have declined from a peak of 7,000 per day at the end of August to about 5,000 per day as of Tuesday. Deaths remain high at about 79 per day as of Tuesday, though not as high as in January when numbers reached as high as 115 deaths per day.
Here's a look at Cobb County and state coronavirus numbers reported Tuesday, and how they compare to the day before. All information comes from the Georgia Department of Public Health.
