NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Fifteen new coronavirus-related deaths were reported in Tennessee on Monday for a total of 3,610, a 0.42% increase from Sunday, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

Tennessee also reported 5,919 new coronavirus cases, a 2.10% increase. The cumulative number of cases is 287,770, the Tennessee Department of Health reported; however, the high rate of increased cases didn’t necessarily occur overnight — TDH said Monday that the large number of reported cases and tests were connected to the backlog associated with the surveillance system upgrade last weekend.

Some 3,910,208 tests have been administered and 1,543 people are currently hospitalized across the state. The number of people who have recovered from the virus is 252,515.

The percent positive number for Monday is 10.95%.
