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 25th. Tennessee confirmed COVID-19 cases increased by 5% for a total of 9,189. Hospitalizations are now at 821, and fatalities rose to 178.
As today is Saturday, there are no media updates from Governor Lee or Mayor Cooper.
