The Tennessee Department of Health confirmed a total of 159,546 cases of COVID-19 in the state on Thursday, September 3. In addition, 1,815 people have died and 897  have been hospitalized. Another 141,568 have either recovered or are inactive.

The Tennessee Department of Health also released the number of probable cases on Thursday. The report shows 3,933 probable cases of COVID-19 and an additional 54 COVID-19-probable deaths.

On Thursday, the Tennessee Department of Health confirmed about 1,700 cases of COVID-19 across the state had the incorrect county of residence reported. These errors at the state level has resulted in a decrease in COVID-19 cases in some counties. The state says these addresses were all resolved at once in Thursday’s report.

In addition, the state will no longer report recovered cases, but they will now be reporting cases that are recovered and “inactive,” meaning the patients are 14 days or further from their illness onset date.
