Tennessee Department of Health COVID-19 Daily Data Report Reflects Data Backlog


Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Health daily data report on COVID-19 cases and tests for April 19th, 2021 reflects a data backlog from one statewide provider. 

Several clinics associated with the provider group reported a backlog totaling approximately 3,200 positive PCR results with some results dating back to January of 2021.

This large data update has a similarly skewed percent positivity rate for the report on April 19th.

The data irregularity is not indicative of an error with the state’s surveillance system but rather the result of a large influx of data received through the system.

Worth noting, only 1,020 of these cases had specimens collected in the last 7 days.
