Gwinnett County hit an important milestone in the fight against COVID-19 last week: Its two-week new case ratio dropped below 100 residents per 100,000 residents for the first time since the beginning of the Delta variant wave in late July.

Gwinnett dropped below the 100 cases per 100,000 residents two-week threshold on Nov. 8 and, with the exception of being exactly 100 cases per 100,000 residents on Nov. 9, the county has stayed below the threshold every other weekday of the last week.

Gwinnett’s two-week ratio on Friday was roughly in the middle of the pack in the 11-county Atlanta Regional Commission footprint. Only Forsyth (123 cases per 100,000 residents), Cobb (106 cases per 100,000 residents), Rockdale (91 cases per 100,000 residents) and Cherokee (90 cases per 100,000 residents) had higher ratios among the 11 counties.

Prior to last week, the last time Gwinnett was below 100 cases per 100,000 residents was July 25.

Gwinnett still has a little way to go before it gets as low as it was in early July, when new cases were well below 50 cases per 100,000 residents over a two-week period, however.

Georgia, as a whole, has had 1.27 million reported cases, 25,352 confirmed deaths, 4,509 probable deaths, 87,815 hospitalizations and 13,721 ICU admissions since the pandemic reached the state.
