The number of cases is expected to increase as testing becomes available throughout the Mid-South.

In a live update Saturday, the Shelby County Health Department said they are working to map out who these patients came in contact with to reduce the communal spread of the virus.

Though health officials are recommending that everyone does not need to be tested for the coronavirus, some Mid-South health care businesses are offering drive-thru testing.

The Tennessee Department of Health is expected to give an update on the state’s total number of cases today at 2 p.m.
