NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Gov. Bill Lee has announced that Tennessee will soon release location information on where coronavirus deaths have occurred in the state after his administration initially declined to do so.

The Republican had been facing pressure to provide the county-level information as Tennessee's death toll from the virus climbed to 23 Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Lee said the state would list not only county information for COVID-19 deaths but also the number of negative tests on a county level.
