Each day, the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) releases figures tracking the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in each county and statewide. In an effort to raise awareness about these figures and understand how our changes in behavior – including business closures, school closures, and sheltering in place for non-essential workers – are impacting infection rates, NashvilleHealth shares tracking updates and insights based on TDH data.
Data acquired from the TDH Website, as of March 24 analyzed by Sajid Khan, Change Healthcare and NashvilleHealth Board.
Metro’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is asking community members, including local medical facilities and professionals who are not involved in caring for COVID-19 patients, to donate new and unused medical and PPE that could protect staff members and providers involved in the city’s response.
Metro is specifically asking for surgical face masks and N-95 masks, isolation gowns, disposable exam gloves, sani-cloth wipes, face shields, hand sanitizer, specimen bags, red top viral tubes (lab supply), nasal swabs (lab supply), and large trash cans.
