    In Tennessee, Most People With Confirmed Cases of Coronavirus Are Not Elderly

    In Tennessee, Most People With Confirmed Cases of Coronavirus Are Not Elderly

    As a state, Tennessee has a total of 73 positive coronavirus cases, which is the 12th most in the country.


    The Volunteer State has completed 352 tests for the Chinese virus. Most of the positive cases have been determined by private or commercial laboratories (53) rather than through the TN public health library (21).


    Guidance from the professional medical community has been that Covid-19 – sometimes referred to as the Wuhan Flu – is particularly dangerous to individuals with serious underlying health conditions and elderly people.


    However, Tennessee’s confirmed cases show a different story.


    The age range with the most confirmed coronavirus cases is between 18-49 with a total of 51 cases. This accounts for 70 percent of all the cases in Tennessee. The next closest age range is 50-64 with 14 confirmed cases.


    Here is a breakdown of the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases per age range:




    • Unknown: 1
    • 0-4: 0
    • 5-17: 1
    • 18-49: 51
    • 50-64: 14
    • 65+: 6


    Even though a person may seem asymptomatic to Chinese coronavirus, they can still be carriers of it and spread the disease. A research article in Science said unknown COVID-19 carriers were the infection source for 79% of documented cases.

    Davidson County – Tennessee’s second-largest county in terms of geographic footprint and population – has been hit the hardest by COVID-19. So far, the county has 42 confirmed cases. The next largest concentration of the illness can be found in neighboring Williamson County with 21 cases. To date, the state’s largest county – Shelby County – has only two confirmed cases.


    Here is a breakdown of all the county confirmed coronavirus cases:




    • Campbell: 1
    • Davidson: 42
    • Hamilton: 1
    • Jefferson: 1
    • Knox: 2
    • Rutherford: 1
    • Sevier: 1
    • Shelby: 2
    • Sullivan: 1
    • Williamson: 21
