COVID-19 in Tennessee: Facts by the Numbers

This is how the coronavirus pandemic is unfolding across East Tennessee from a statistical perspective.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Every day we are inundated with numbers, statistics, and analysis about COVID-19.  As of April 1, the Tennessee Department of Health confirmed 2,683 cases of the coronavirus in Tennessee. 24 people have died. 29,769 people have tested negative for the virus. 

It's a lot of numbers to process, but visualizing the data can sometimes be helpful to put the situation in perspective.  Here are a few graphs, maps, and charts we hope will help you.

1) Tracking COVID-19 in Tennessee Over Time And By County 

This graph shows a variety of data points. 

It is a representation of the confirmed number of COVID-19 cases in Tennessee – tracked both by county and over time. You will be able to see how many cases there were in your county on what date, and can also take a look at when a particular county confirmed their first case of COVID-19. 

One way is to look at the graph is through the Scores tab, which lets you see the confirmed number of COVID-19 cases by actual numberAnother way is to look at the rank. As the weeks went on throughout March, Davidson County led Tennessee in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases. Eventually, on March 28, 2020, Shelby County was the county in Tennessee with the most confirmed cases of COVID-19.  

Within the context of the rank graph, that means Davidson County would be marked with a 1 and then a 2 once Shelby County had the most cases. 

This graph represents data provided from the Tennessee Department of Health from March 13, 2020 to April 1, 2020. 

2) Tennessee Total Number of Confirmed Cases By Region
