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. Select the DATA option towards the top right for Tennessee and county numbers.

According to the TN Dept. of Health,

335,887 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in TN and
4,211 have died from it.

That is an additional 30,767 cases in one week and
an additional 334 reported deaths.

4,243,912 tests have been given to Tennessee residents.
That is an additional 210,558 tests in the past week.

Hospitalizations have increased. From November 14 to November 21 (7 days) the number of patients hospitalized for the coronavirus has increased by 10.3% (by 192 from 1,868 to 2,060).

7.9% of TN residents tested for the coronavirus have tested positive for the coronavirus.

61.6% 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.
