Despite efforts to delay spread, the confirmed cases of Coronavirus COVID-19 in the United States has now exceeded the benchmark of 10,000 cases as of Mar. 19, 2020 with 10,755 confirmed U.S. cases according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at John Hopkins University (JHU) and is expected to continue rising. The report shows there have been 154 deaths and 106 recovered in the U.S. so far.
Although there have been continued promises by the federal administration of adequate testing abilities, those have been slow to come to fruition; therefore, this number is widely expected to increase as more tests actually become available and more cases can be tested and confirmed.
According to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at John Hopkins University (JHU), total cases currently confirmed globally are 229,289 with total deaths of 9,324 and 84,557 recovered.
Their report shows the state of Tennessee has a total of 100 confirmed cases with no deaths and none recovered.
According to the Tennessee Department of Health, the most recent report (updated at 2:00 p.m. CST yesterday on Mar. 18) indicates total confirmed cases in the state is 98 (74 of which were done outside of the State Public Health Laboratory in other commercial and private laboratories). Most of the confirmed cases come from two Tennessee counties: Davidson County with 58 and Williamson county with 24.
Discrepancies occur between CSSE at JHU and TDH due to timing differences of reports.
