Phoebe Reports Friday COVID-19 Numbers


Friday, February 19, 2021 @ 11:22 a.m. -

Albany, Ga. – As of noon Friday, these were Phoebe’s COVID-19 numbers:

  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 52
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Sumter Medical Center – 12
  • Total COVID-19 Patients in Phoebe Worth Medical Center – 1
  • Total Inpatients Recovered – 2,043
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital – 241
  • Total Positive Deaths from Phoebe Sumter – 61
  • Total Vaccines Administered – 30,132

“Our COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to drop rapidly.  System-wide, we averaged about five new COVID-19 admissions per day over the last week.  That is less than half the daily average we experienced throughout the month of January.  Even as our admissions go down, the virus continues to take the lives of more patients.  An increase in deaths generally lags several weeks behind an increase in hospitalizations, and unfortunately, we lost nine patients in the last week,” said Scott Steiner, Phoebe Putney Health System President and CEO.  “We know we can prevent deaths and hospital admissions by getting more people vaccinated.  We are pleased that the state will assist in efforts to increase vaccination numbers by opening a mass vaccination site in Albany next week.  While there is no firm date for moving to the next phase of vaccinations and opening up the opportunity to more Georgians, we believe that day is coming soon, and we look forward to protecting more people from the virus,” Steiner added.

Georgians can register for a vaccination appointment at the state site by going to www.myvaccinegeorgia.com.  Southwest Georgia residents can schedule a vaccination appointment at multiple Phoebe vaccination sites throughout the region by calling 229-312-1919.
