MPHD Daily COVID-19 Update for November 11


MPHD Daily COVID-19 Update for November 11

Metro Public Health Department officials announced today 37,787 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Nashville/Davidson County.

There have been twelve new probable cases in the past 24 hours.

Probable cases refer to those that have supporting epidemiological and clinical evidence that a
COVID-19 infection has occurred, regardless of test result. If a person is a close contact of a COVID-19 case and has a clinically compatible illness, he or she can meet the criteria to be a probable case. Additionally, a positive result of an antigen test from a respiratory specimen can meet the criteria to be a probable case. If a health care provider diagnoses a person with clinically compatible illness with COVID-19, this person meets the probable case criteria.

Including both confirmed and probable cases, MPHD officials announced a total of 38,262 cases, an increase of 252 in the past 24 hours.

The cases range in age from 1 month to 103 years.

There have been no new probable deaths reported in the past 24 hours.

When the health care provider who signs the death certificate determines COVID-19 disease was the cause of death or a significant condition contributing to death, this person meets the probable case criteria and would be considered a probable death.

Three additional confirmed deaths have been reported in the past 24 hours, an 84-year-old man with underlying health conditions and a 60-year-old man and a 75-year-old man with pending medical histories.

A total of three hundred sixteen (316) people in Davidson County have died after a confirmed case of COVID-19. Including both confirmed and probable cases, 327 deaths have been attributed to COVID-19.

34,955 individuals are now labeled inactive/recovered after having the virus previously.

Health officials remind everyone to take steps to stop the spread of germs like COVID-19. These include:

  • Practice social distancing as defined by the CDC (6 feet of distance from others).
  • Gatherings are recommended to be kept at 25 people or fewer, to the extent possible. Intimate gatherings are the most high-risk setting for transmission of COVID-19.
  • Wear a cloth face covering when in a community setting, especially in situations where you may be near people. These face coverings are not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Stay at home as much as possible. People over 65 years of age or whose health is at risk should remain at home if possible.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
