ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the strength and resiliency of South Georgia.

To recognize that, WALB is bringing you a new podcast called “Voices of COVID-19."

Host Krista Monk spoke with Mandy Hall, the Emergency Room director for Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. Phoebe, based in Albany, saw a massive spike in cases right at the beginning of the pandemic as the city became one of the worst hotspots in the country based on per capita comparisons. So, what did it look like from the ER of the city’s only hospital? Mandy explains what she and her staff experienced and what they continue to deal with on a daily basis.
