ATLANTA (AP) — The number of confirmed virus infections in Georgia has pushed past 1,000, with deaths rising to 32. Officials in southwest Georgia's largest city warned Tuesday that they're out of intensive care space for patients with the COVID-19 respiratory illness. The number of positive results statewide are up 28% since Monday evening, with southwest Georgia's Dougherty County still reporting the highest per capita numbers. Infections there rose to 90. The state's cities are being urged to impose more restrictions to slow the spread of the virus. The Georgia Municipal Association advises the state's 538 cities to order overnight curfews and close gyms, movie theaters and other businesses.
