CNN: Doctor in small Georgia city says coronavirus spread through community before hospital staff found out what it was. “Coronavirus spread through a southwest Georgia city for 10 days in March before hospital staff were told what was filling their wards with desperately sick people, a doctor told Congress on Thursday. ‘We were shocked by its abrupt entrance into our lives, and the virus had been spreading quietly for 10 days, and very quickly,’ Dr. Shanti Akers, a pulmonary critical care physician at Phoebe Putney Health System in Albany, testified.”
