NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Tennessee’s coronavirus metrics have trended largely in a positive direction in recent weeks, but that may now be changing.
Officials on Thursday reported 63 virus related deaths statewide. That’s a grim new single day record for Tennessee.
The number of new infections reported by the state each day is also up sharply.
The weekly average of new cases as reported this past Sunday stood at roughly 1200 new infections every 24 hours. Just four days later that average was up more than 540 cases per day.
