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

According to the TN Dept. of Health,

190,891 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in TN and
2,374 have died from it.

That is an additional 9,052 cases in one week and an additional 158 reported deaths.

2,782,844 tests have been given to Tennessee residents.
That is an additional 161,753 tests in the past week.

Hospitalizations appear to have increased. From September 19 to September 26 (7 days) the number of patients hospitalized for the coronavirus has decreased by 11.6% (by 77 from 662 to 739).

6.9% of TN residents tested for the coronavirus have tested positive for the coronavirus.

40.2% 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.
