CovidActNow’s risk level grades on three things: daily new cases per 100k, infection rates and positive test rates. Each is graded on a five-color scale and the highest risk color becomes the location’s overall risk level.
Georgia has an average of 5.1 daily new cases per 100k of COVID-19 which is deemed ‘medium risk’.
On average, each person in Georgia with COVID-19 is infecting 1.23 other people. As such, the total number of active cases in Georgia is growing and its infection rate has been deemed ‘high risk’.
A significant percentage (3.1%) of COVID tests were positive, meaning that Georgia’s testing meets WHO minimums but needs to be further expanded to detect most new cases.
