Atlanta Journal-Constitution: COVID Death Rate In Rural Georgia Now Double That In Urban Areas "> Atlanta Journal-Constitution: COVID Death Rate In Rural Georgia Now Double That In Urban Areas

Since August, as the pandemic’s delta variant caused a surge in cases, rural Georgians have been dying of COVID-19 at more than twice the rate of their urban counterparts, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution analysis of state health data. COVID-19 has claimed more than 19,000 lives in urban counties like Fulton, DeKalb, Muscogee and Bibb, the type of counties where 80% of the state’s population resides. But in the quiet small towns that make up much of the state, the per-capita toll is even greater, especially during this latest surge. In Pierce County, with a population of 19,000 located a dozen miles northeast of Waycross, a resident was 10 times more likely to die of COVID-19 than someone in 1 million-strong Fulton County, home of the state Capitol, the analysis found.
