Every day, the Tennessee Department of Health releases figures tracking the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in each county and statewide. In an effort to raise awareness about these figures and understand how our changes in behavior – including business closures, school closures, and sheltering in place for non-essential workers – are impacting infection rates, NashvilleHealth is sharing daily tracking updates and insights based on Department of Health data. We are also incorporating the latest daily figures for Davidson County from Nashville Mayor John Cooper’s office.
Here is the latest state-level data as of 3pm CT on April 14th. Tennessee confirmed COVID-19 cases increased from 5,610 on Monday, April 13th to 5,823 on Tuesday, April 14th. Hospitalizations are now at 633, a 9% increase from yesterday. Fatalities rose 2.13%, from 109 to 124.
The data for Nashville-Davidson County is current as of 9:30am CT on April 14th. The city has confirmed 1,457 cases of COVID-19, up from 1,385 on April 13, a 72-case increase. We are still encouraged by the numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases, but the increase today could be in part due to less people being tested over the holiday weekend. Please keep staying the course and stay at home unless going out for essential errands.
