Tennessee not issuing coronavirus stats on Sunday due to 'unplanned shutdown'

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wate.com/health/coronavirus/tennessee-not-issuing-coronavirus-stats-on-sunday-due-to-unplanned-shutdown/amp/

“TDH will not issue data on COVID-19 cases and tests on Sunday, June 28, due to an unplanned shutdown of the state surveillance system. Daily provision of case counts and additional data will resume once the system returns to full functionality. Full statement below."

Snip

In a news release, the Tennessee Department of Health said:

“TDH uses the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System Base System, known as NBS, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help local, state and territorial health departments manage reportable disease data and send it to CDC. This system houses data for all reportable diseases in Tennessee, including COVID-19, and is the system health department staff members use to perform public health case investigations.

“Due to an extremely high volume of both COVID-19 and other laboratory test results being reported, there have been recent intermittent backlogs of labs in queue to be imported into the NBS system. This issue is not unique to Tennessee, and is affecting all NBS jurisdictions. The TDH team has been working closely with the NBS vendor and Tennessee State Government information technology support to quickly implement fixes that have been identified.

1. Thanks, SheltieLover

I think yesterday showed a 3.8 % one day increase iirc. Here's hoping it's just computer whizzes doing their stuff.
