Those new figures represent two days of case and death numbers.

That brings the total to 9,904 cases and 185 deaths. 

The number of cases, number of recovered and testing positivity rates were unavailable on Monday, June 29 due to a data upload issue with the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System that affected metropolitan health departments across the state.

The Tennessee Department of Health, which typically reports new statewide figures at 2 p.m. daily, did not release figures on Sunday due to the data issue.


On Monday afternoon, the agency reported 42,297 cases, including 592 deaths, 2,599 hospitalizations and 26,962 recovered in Tennessee.
