CORONAVIRUS 2021: January

An ongoing tally of the number of coronavirus cases as we enter the second year of the pandemic, people continue to ignore health warnings to wear masks in public, social distancing measures are not observed, and the death toll from COVID-19 continues to rise

Mark Kooyman is the CEO/Discovery Chief at EXPERIENCE Insight Group, Inc. and a well-regarded market research expert who lives in Atlanta. Kooyman has been preparing daily numbers on COVID-19 for friends and family since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. We thank him for allowing Creative Loafing to publish his results.

The coronavirus report will be posted intermittently throughout the month of January. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

After a deeper exploration of the percentages I have been posting of individuals being tested and the percentage of those testing positive with COVID-19, I have decided to remove those statistics from the daily report. Unfortunately, the stats are very misleading. They do not, in any way, provide any application to the broader scope of the communities tracked. Not only does the number of individuals being tested vary widely from one community to the next, the mix of the individuals being tested also varies in terms of demographics and COVID-19 “exposure.”

  • COVID-19 tests increased by 1,579,564
  • Active COVID-19 cases increased by 37,069
  • “Critical/serious” cases increased by 28,452. The number of “critical/serious” cases represents 0.89 percent of the total active cases
  • Deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increased by 4,207, compared to the 4,100 deaths posted yesterday
  • Survivors of COVID-19 increased by 193,000

Onward into 2021 — and back to work we go!

Saturday, January 2, 2021

I worked a bit longer in pulling together numbers this morning. There is a delay in the filing by a number of western states to national tracking sources. As a result, I had to resource the local tracking sources of each state to secure counts.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

  • The total number of tracked coronavirus cases accounts for 6.08 percent of the population
  • The number of tracked active COVID-19 cases represents 0.91 percent of the population
  • The number of COVID-19 survivors represents 5.06 percent of the population (All survivor numbers reported are based on the 14-day U.S. universal recovery time)


The 20,125,418 individuals in the U.S. individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having contracted the coronavirus to date break down as follows:

  • Active cases — 3,026,234 cases, or 15.0 percent, 15.9 percent yesterday

  • Oconee County — 443 active cases today, 420 cases yesterday


Here is an update on the number of active cases by counties in the metro Atlanta and greater Athens area. Significant increases are being reported but the increase appears to be the result of delays in reporting taking place this past week.

Friday, January 1, 2021

Welcome to the New Year of 2021!

As you review the numbers today, please keep in mind that they are bouncing from state-to-state and from one day to the next. The actual daily counts should become more representative of the actual daily tracking next Tuesday or Wednesday, once  the holidays are behind us.

Also, over the weekend, my groupings of several key states will be re-engineered to capture more relevant tracking sets. States like Iowa and Nebraska, with lower numbers, will no longer be tracked, while other states like Virginia, Louisiana and Washington will be built into the tracking mix.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

  • The total number of tracked coronavirus cases accounts for 6.02 percent of the population
  • Tracked active COVID-19 cases represent 0.93 percent of the population
  • The number of COVID-19 survivors represents 5.00 percent of the population.


The 19,929,374 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having contracted the coronavirus to date break down as follows:

  • Active cases — 15.9 percent or 3,085,819 cases, 15.9 percent yesterday
  • Deaths — 1.8 percent or 353,116 deaths, 1.8 percent yesterday (COVID-19 direct and indirect cause of death)
  • Survivors —82.3 percent or 16,490,439 individuals, 82.3 percent yesterday (based on 14-day U.S. universal recovery time)


Nationwide, in the past 24 hours:

  • Coronavirus cases increased by 228,413 in the past 24 hours
  • Survivors of COVID-19 increased by 249,137 — the highest number of recoveries posting in a 24-hour period!
  • Active COVID-19 cases decreased by 51,162 cases.
  • Deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increased by3,438 compared to 3,880 deaths posted yesterday
  • “Critical/serious” cases increased by 28,213 . The number of “critical/serious” cases represents 0.91 percent of the total active cases.


Nationwide, over the past seven days:

  • Coronavirus cases have declined, from 3,253,123 last Saturday to 3,085,819 today, or less 5.1 percent
  • COVID-19 tests completed increased by 11,477,839 , for a total of 253,546,331 COVID-19 tests completed
  • 1,231,488 individuals, or 10.7 percent, tested positive, the seven-day rolling percentage of active cases posted 10.3 percent yesterday.
  • 16,502 individuals died directly or indirectly from COVID-19


In Georgia, 11,709 active COVID-19 cases posted in the past 24 hours. The number of cases represents 5.1 percent of total cases in the U.S. and Georgia accounts for 3.2 percent of the population. The COVID-19 incidence level in Georgia indexes at 159. This is one of the highest levels of new active cases in the past 120 days, but it is difficult to evaluate any trend because of the delays and bouncing daily case counts over the holidays.

Below are the Georgia Department of Health numbers for the total active number of cases by county. Keep in mind that the number of individuals being tested remains a small percentage of the population at-large. Most counties average about two to three percent of their population being tested over a two-week period:
