From reports dated as of July 24 or 25 or 26, 2020.
Not sure exactly. One TN Dept of Health web page says July 25 case counts are delayed due to a technical difficulty.
Another page, the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Unified Command (by Arcgis) indicates a date of 7/26/2020.
There has been a steady increase in coronavirus (covid-19) cases in Tennessee.

1,381,859 residents have been tested.
That is an additional 208,947 tests in the past week.
42,649 more tests were given in the last week as compared to the week before.

Hospitalizations are up. From July 18 to July 28 (8 days) the number of patients hospitalized for the coronavirus has increased by 4.3% (42 from 982 to 1,024). .

Knox County had another

Knox County had another death. Any idea why Knox's rate is climbing while surrounding counties death rate is low yet their infection cases are much higher?

What neighboring counties do

What neighboring counties do you mean? Besides Sevier maybe, which counties have higher infection rates than Knox?

I didn't vet the data myself,

I didn't vet the data myself, but WBIR has been reporting which counties have record number of cases and Knox is never included. The 12:00 news reported four new deaths in Knox County. Why does Knox have a Yellow light, while Sevier has a Red light with fewer deaths? The news from the media is a bit skewed.
