Recoveries and Negative Cases

Last week the Tennessee Department of Health began including the number of recoveries and negative cases by county and across the state. Currently, out of 3,633 confirmed positive cases, 295 of those cases have recovered. This number is lower than what was reported on Saturday. The department states this was due to a data error in the April 4 report, the recovered calculation decreased. The error which led to an incorrect value has been corrected.

Out of 45,300 tests across the state, 41,667 of them were negative.
