NASHVILLE (November 9) — Some people falsely believed COVID-19 infections would instantly disappear after the November 3 election. Actually, the number of new cases is soaring in the United States including 731,268 new cases in the past week.
At least two persons in this week’s obituaries in The McKenzie Banner died from complications of COVID-19. Those are Mr. Janner and Ms. Bledsoe.
Phil Williams of Channel 5 News, Nashville wrote on November 7, Tennessee reported an all-time daily high of 5,071 new COVID19 cases. That’s 40 percent higher than the previous record! This is the second highest week of the pandemic — just barely — in terms of new cases. The November 7 report of 49 deaths makes this the second highest week of the pandemic, again just barely behind last week’s record.
Tennessee has 287,770 (264,587 last week) total cases in 2020 and 3,610 (3,379 last week) deaths related to COVID-19 as reported on Monday, November 9. Currently, there are 1,543 hospitalized across the state with COVID-19.
