ATLANTA — While Georgia is making progress in the battle against COVID-19, some counties stand out as places where the virus is spreading widely in the latest White House coronavirus task force report.
While that report outlined some of the progress the state has made in containing the coronavirus pandemic, for yet another week, Gwinnett, Fulton and DeKalb counties had the highest number of new cases.
Zip codes can help reveal potential hotspots for COVID-19 in these areas. 11Alive's numbers team is taking a look.
