TN hits 9% hospital capacityTennessee hits 9% hospital capacity (source TN website):
While not yet at the prior levels of cases from last year — cases are significantly higher than the prior 3 months. Note from the orange bars we can see TN got hit pretty hard with the Delta wave:
Also note the spike in fatalities in Dec of 3000+ is a result of a correction in the data — likely a result of under reporting of deaths during the delta wave. Actual December deaths are much lower. Best to think about that 3,000 number as spread across the prior 3 months or so. In which case this is still a concering level…. and further corroborates the current hospital capacity data.
Be careful — especially this new years eve
