MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The University of Tennessee Health Science Center is tracking the COVID-19 pandemic in Shelby County, the Memphis Metropolitan Area, and Tennessee.
UTHSC has released regional maps for the general public, as well as county and city government, law enforcement, and health care leaders to better understand the virus locally and plan for the future.
One map tracked a surge in cases for Tipton County on May 11, due to the detection of many infected people in the West Tennessee Detention Facility.
Another map tracks new cases in Shelby County every day, specifically around the time the shelter-in-place ordinance was issued and when the Back-to-Business plan began. A blue shaded area has been added as a prediction of future cases and to help see if the virus is spreading more rapidly after reopening.
