The number of COVID-19 cases in the Cobb County School District has risen rapidly over the past week against a backdrop of controversy over the CCSD’s refusal to follow CDC recommendations on masking and quarantine protocols. The active cases now stands at 822.

The CCSD posts the number of active cases on its website each Friday.

East Side Elementary School, which sent its 5th grade class home because of COVID cases, now has 46 active and 49 cumulative cases of COVID-19, by far the largest number in any single school.

    The total number just changed to 822 they did not add correctly. 551 new cases a rise of 297%.

  2. Out of these “cases” how many of these kids are actually sick? How many are hospitalized? We are all aware that the only thing that needs to be done to show more “cases” is to raise the threshold of the test. This is exactly what Kary Mullis, the genius, scientist, and creator of PCR said about it before this was even an issue. If you raise the bar high enough, anyone can test positive for anything, it does not mean the person is sick.

    • If you follow the links to the report, that data is there. While the raw numbers of emergency room trips and hospitalization among 0-4 and 5-17 are still relatively small, those numbers have an extremely sharp uptick over the past few weeks on the graph. 18-22 (college age) is worse, both in increase and in raw numbers and percentage. Hospitalization of 0-4 year olds was very rare until recently. With the Delta variant spreading it’s becoming more commonplace.

      And the illnesses among the children themselves isn’t all there is to the story. Infected children spread the disease to the family, and school is a big common denominator connecting families within and to each other.

    • Addition to my last reply. The link is in the article about the GDPH figures. It’s at https://epidemiologyschoolreport.s3.amazonaws.com/SchoolAgeSurveillance0802.html
