Local Covid-19 cases accelerate

From September 28th through October 11th, there have been 49 new COVID cases for McIntosh County. Overall for the county, the total number of cases is 119, with 3 deaths. The numbers seem to be going up, but according to the CDC, the data obtained through testing are compiled "from a number of sources, and not all tests are reported to the CDC." Also, "The number of positive tests in a state is not equal to the number of cases, as one person may be tested more than once." This means there may be a rise in cases, but it's hard to determine concrete numbers.
