There has been a steady increase in coronavirus (covid-19) cases in Tennessee.

The Tennessee Department of Health and Tennessee’s Unified Command Group announced the launch of a new website to provide COVID-19 data, additional health information and relevant updates to Tennesseans. The site is now available at Select the DATA option towards the top right for Tennessee and county numbers.

According to the TN Dept. of Health,

305,120 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in TN and
3,877 have died from it.

That is an additional 44,448 cases in two weeks and
an additional 524 reported deaths.

4,033,354 tests have been given to Tennessee residents.
That is an additional 376,349 tests in the past two weeks.

Hospitalizations have increased. From October 31 to November 14 (14 days) the number of patients hospitalized for the coronavirus has increased by 33.5% (by 469 from 1,399 to 1,868).

7.5% of TN residents tested for the coronavirus have tested positive for the coronavirus.

58.5% of the 6.89 million people estimated to live in TN have been tested for the coronavirus.
However, that may not be true. it is not known how tests are counted when a single person gets tested multiple times. Certain people in certain fields of work (medical, education, sports) or physical ability (nursing home residents, hospital patients) may get tested multiple times.

Be careful out there.
