Tennessee remains one of the most infectious states when it comes to COVID-19 and signs are pointing to things getting worse soon.
“I’m fairly certain it’s going to get worse,” Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Health Lisa Piercey said this week.
Doctors are trying to sound the alarm in hopes that Tennesseans won’t let their guard down against the coronavirus. It’s been on the radar for the Department of Health for several days.
According to health department data, 21% of Tennesseans have started the vaccination process.
However, Dr. Piercey says a dramatic rise in new cases is possible.
1,313 new cases and 10 deaths were reported March 31.
