During the Metro Coronavirus Task Force briefing on April 14, health officials released an updated heat map showing areas with the highest concentrations of residents diagnosed with coronavirus.

The map is updated weekly and represents the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases reported to the Metro Nashville Public Health Department as of April 13. It is based on ZIP codes and does not represent the exact locations of cases, according to task force Chairperson Dr. Alex Jahangir.

As of April 14, local health officials have announced 1,457 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Davidson County ranging in age from 2 months to 94 years old. Officials also reported three additional coronavirus-related deaths—three men, ages 41, 75 and 82—bringing the total number of deaths to 16 in Davidson County.

Of the 1,457 confirmed cases reported as of April 14, 62 residents who have tested positive for coronavirus remain hospitalized and 307 residents have recovered from the virus.

Metro Nashville officials released a map on April 7 showing which areas of the county have the highest concentrations of residents diagnosed with coronavirus.

As of April 7, local health officials have announced 1,075 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Davidson County ranging in age from 2 months to 85 years old.

Officials also reported three additional coronavirus-related deaths April 7—three men, ages 72, 62 and 78—bringing the total number of deaths to nine in Davidson County.

The map below represents 602 of the 926 confirmed coronavirus cases reported to the Metro Nashville Public Health Department as of April 6, according to Dr. Alex Jahangir, chair of the Metro Coronavirus Task Force. About one-third of the cases could not be mapped due to unknown ZIP codes and out-of-county residences.

According to Jahangir, some concentrations on the map can be traced to group gatherings. The map, which will be updated weekly, is based on ZIP codes and does not represent the exact locations of cases.

"They are data points to represent the magnitude of this virus throughout our city," Jahangir said during a press conference April 7. "This shows where the person who tested positive lives and not necessarily where they contracted the virus. You will see the virus is more prevalent in some areas, and this is traced back to several incidents of groups gathering."



The darker red color on the map indicates areas of Davidson County with higher numbers of cases.

"Those clusters you see are around certain events that have occurred, and I can’t get into the exact specific events, but think about what’s happening nationally ... you’re seeing religious events, school events, fundraisers, big family gatherings," Jahangir said. "Those are consistent with what our clusters in Nashville have been thus far."

Of the 1,075 confirmed cases reported as of April 7, 36 residents who have tested positive for coronavirus remain hospitalized and 133 residents have recovered from the virus.
