State totals 

The Tennessee Department of Health has reported a total of 428,973 cases of COVID-19 across the state, up 6,011 cases since Wednesday on 30,850 new test results — an 18.6 percent positivity rate.

Of the total number of cases, 5,240 people have died — up 69 from the numbers 24 hours earlier.

The number of active cases in Tennessee has fluctuated during the past two weeks due to delayed reporting from the Thanksgiving holiday and backlogs at labs. On Thursday, officials said 41,289 individuals around the state are currently infected with COVID.

The number of patients hospitalized with the disease in the state has increased 15 percent in the past two weeks, with more than 2,558 people at 114 hospitals now being treated for a confirmed case of COVID.

In terms of capacity, the state reports that 13 percent of inpatient beds (1,472) and 10 percent of ICU beds (194) remain available. Nearly 72 percent of the state's ventilator supply is still available.
