Deaths up.
Hospitalizations up.
Tests given down.

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

According to the TN Dept. of Health,

199,595 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in TN and
2,560 have died from it.

That is an additional 8,704 cases in one week and an additional 186 reported deaths.

2,928,809 tests have been given to Tennessee residents.
That is an additional 145,965 tests in the past week.

Hospitalizations appear to have increased. From September 26 to October 3 (7 days) the number of patients hospitalized for the coronavirus has increased by 15.7% (by 116 from 739 to 855).

6.8% of TN residents tested for the coronavirus have tested positive for the coronavirus.

42.5% 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.
