People have been requesting more stats to put the figures in context, so we’re adding what we can.  We include hospitalizations & recovered when we can. Plus in Tennessee, we compare the number of negative tests to positive (big difference).

There is a lag between locally reported cases and state numbers, plus the state does re-assign some cases to other areas (like they did in Sequatchie County today when they removed one of theirs)

And remember, when we talk about 94 cases in Hamilton County, that is out of more than 360,000 residents.
