To date, there have been 34,256,300 reported cases of the virus nationwide -- and that number is growing every day.

In the Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro--Franklin metropolitan area, located in Tennessee, a total of 259,664 COVID-19 cases have been reported to date. Adjusted for population, there have been 13,929 reported infections for every 100,000 people in the area -- above the national rate of 10,471 cases per 100,000 people.

The higher than average per capita COVID-19 infection rate across Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro--Franklin is being driven by a high concentration of the virus in one area in particular.

Not only does Trousdale County have the most COVID-19 infections per capita in the Nashville area, it also has more deaths attributable to the virus per capita than the metro area as a whole.
