NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  A new report from Vanderbilt researchers shows a marked improvement in Nashville’s COVID-19 metrics.

 

The Vanderbilt MicroBiome Initiative notes that the city has reported a declining number of new infections for the past three weeks.

 

The number of confirmed cases has fallen by half, from a high more than 2700 new cases per week in mid-July, to just over 1300 cases this past week.

 

On the down side, new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control project COVID-19 will be the nation’s third leading cause of death, behind only cancer and heart disease, by year’s end.
