Cases of the coronavirus in Tennessee have risen to 42,297 as of June 29, according to the latest update from the Tennessee Department of Health.


This marks an increase of 2,125 new cases reported since the department's last update June 27.

The TDH did not release a case update on June 28 due to, “an unplanned shutdown of the state surveillance system,” according to a statement from the department.

The daily totals also include 592 cumulative deaths, 2,599 cumulative hospitalizations and an estimated 26,962 recoveries to date.


In Davidson County, there have been at least 9,016 reported cases. Williamson County has reported 1,001 cases.


Overall, more than 776,000 COVID-19 tests have been conducted, according to the TDH update, including more than 28,000 reported in the last 48 hours.

The announcement comes after Gov. Bill Lee signed an executive order to extend Tennessee's state of emergency through the end of August.
