To date, there have been 33,741,500 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 257,770 COVID-19 cases have been reported to date. Adjusted for population, there have been 13,828 reported infections for every 100,000 people in the area -- above the national rate of 10,313 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.
