We see them every day. The new COVID-19 numbers for Georgia arrive at 3 p.m., and they are quickly shared across the state by news outlets and reporters.

Hundreds, sometimes thousands, of cases are reported, with dozens of lives reported lost every day. And that’s just in one state.

These are the numbers that dot headlines and lead news reports. But they are not the only numbers. And they don’t cover the millions of Georgians – all of us, really – who have been impacted in some way by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re here to shine a light on those in need of it.

This is "The Ripple," a look at the many ways the pandemic has taken a toll on overlooked and underserved communities across Georgia. This series could honestly be endless, because the effects are seemingly infinite. 

11Alive will isolate and spotlight four key issues in four communities across the state: the looming eviction crisis, the impact on Hispanic and Latino communities, the plight of rural hospitals, and forgotten counties.
