TDH releases no COVID-19 data on Sunday due to “unplanned shutdown” of state surveillance system
COVID-19 data was not released Sunday for the state of TN.
The state department of health announced yesterday that daily data is delayed because of an unplanned shutdown of the state surveillance system. The surveillance system, which was developed by the CDC, experienced a backlog due to high volumes of COVID-19 tests and lab results being reported. The department stated on social media they will resume daily provision of case counts and additional data once the system is fully functional again.
