“Overall, our COVID numbers continue to trend in the right direction, but we have admitted 48 COVID-19 patients in the last week alone.  ” .  Those numbers are stark proof that our communities continue to experience substantial transmission of the virus, with a lot of people getting seriously ill and requiring hospitalization.  While we hope to put this latest surge behind us soon, now is not the time to act as if the pandemic is over,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System President & CEO.
