NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Tennessee has recorded more new cases of COVID-19 already this week, than it did in the first three months of the pandemic.

State health officials have recorded just under 30,000 new infections since Sunday. That’s as many cases as Tennessee reported between early March and mid-June.

The current seven-day rolling average shows just over 8300 Tennesseans are confirmed virus positive every 24 hours. That’s nearly three times the average daily case count the state experienced during the summer surge.
