Report Of Fayette County COVID-19 Case From Georgia Dept Of Public Health

ONN – Fayette County, GA – In this time of the pandemic caused by the spread of novel causing life-threatening cases, it is vitally important to make sure that information disseminated by the media is correct, and adjusted where inaccuracies are found.

UPDATE: Report Of Five Presumed Coronavisrus COVID-19 Cases At Fayette County GA Piedmont Hospital

That was the case with a news report issued by The Citizen on Monday, March 9th. The headline read “Fayette has its first ‘presumed’ case”. Then the text went on to explain the following:

Fayette County has its first “presumed positive” case caused by the novel , according to a release sent Monday night from the office of Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.
The unidentified Fayette person is “hospitalized,” Gov. Kemp’s office wrote. The location of the hospital was not disclosed.
In addition to the Fayette case, there are four other presumed cases of , the disease caused by the , the governor’s office wrote.
“The additional cases are in Cobb, Fayette, Gwinnett and two in DeKalb,” the state said. “The individuals are hospitalized, and the sources of their infections are unknown.”

The trouble is when I went to look for the press release on the website of the Governor’s Office Of Brian Kemp, there was not one document matching that report. Then, I called the Governor’s Office, and then the Press Office ran by Cody Hall. No response.

Then, I emailed Mr. Hall himself – no response from him to this date and time.

So, I took a copy of the text highlighted above that was quoted in a number of publications, including The Citizen in Fayetteville, and pasted it into Google Search. That’s where I learned the actual location of the : The Georgia Department Of Public Health. It could be that the Governor’s Office originally posted the press release, or issued it, but didn’t put it on the press website. Whatever the case, the origin was redirected to its rightful place: The Georgia Department Of Public Health.

This is what the website page of the The Georgia Department Of Public Health read:

ATLANTA – The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is awaiting confirmatory testing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on five additional presumptive positive cases of in Georgia. The additional cases are in Cobb, Fayette, Gwinnett and two in DeKalb. The individuals are hospitalized, and the sources of their infections are unknown.

So, it’s clear that there is a patient in Fayette County, and that person is in the hospital.
