CHART: Active COVID-19 active cases in region on July 11, 2020

This chart reflects the increase in active cases over the three-week period between June 20 and July 11. Active cases are determined by subtracting deaths and recovered numbers from the total positives to provide an indicator of how many people in each county that were tested and received a positive result are still able to transmit COVID-19. The region (orange) is defined as Blount County (red bars) and its bordering counties of Knox, Loudon, Monroe and Sevier (lines). The number of active cases has nearly tripled in three weeks from 500 to 1,440, reflecting that the infection rate is now outpacing the rates of recovery that were nearly equal on daily basis during May as the curve flattened in our region.
