Georgia's confirmed COVID deaths per 100,000 people, by age group, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through Feb. 12. Georgia's overall COVID death rate is 207.6, which means that one in every 370 Georgians has died of COVID-19. For the U.S., the overall COVID death rate is higher at 279.5. In almost every age group, the pandemic has been more deadly in Georgia than in the rest of the country. But Georgia has a disproportionately young population, and people under the age of 50 are much more likely to survive COVID-19 unscathed than older people are. This can mask the fact that older Georgians are more likely to die of COVID than are people in other parts of the country.
