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

According to the TN Dept. of Health,

260,672 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in TN and
3,353 have died from it.

That is an additional 37,179 cases in two weeks and an additional 482 reported deaths.

3,657,005 tests have been given to Tennessee residents.
That is an additional 362,949 tests in the past two weeks.

Hospitalizations appear to have increased. From October 16 to October 31 (15 days) the number of patients hospitalized for the coronavirus has increased by 20.0% (by 233 from 1,166 to 1,399).

7.0% of TN residents tested for the coronavirus have tested positive for the coronavirus.

53.1% 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.
