MPHD Daily COVID-19 Update for July 12

Metro Public Health Department officials announced today 14,521 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Nashville/Davidson County.

There has been one new additional probable cases in the past 24 hours.

Probable cases refer to those that do not test positive in a diagnostic test but might have tested positive in a different form of test like an antibody or serologic test. Probable cases also could refer to cases that were never tested but exhibited the factors consistent with a COVID-19 infection, like symptoms and close contacts of confirmed cases.

Including both confirmed and probable cases, MPHD officials announced a total of 14,538 cases, an increase of 219 in the past 24 hours.

The cases range in age from 1 month to 102 years.

There have been no new probable deaths 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.

An additional confirmed death has been reported in the past 24 hours, a 60-year-old male with underlying health conditions.

A total of one-hundred thirty-eight (138) people in Davidson County have died after a confirmed case of COVID-19. Including both confirmed and probable cases, 141 deaths have been attributed to COVID-19.

9,165 individuals have recovered from the virus.

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.
