KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The University of Tennessee Medical Center announced a daily COVID-19 dashboard Friday. Hospital officials said the goal of the dashboard is to provide transparent information about COVID at the hospital in a post on social media.
According to Friday’s post, 104 people are at UT Medical Center with COVID-19, and 87 percent of those hospitalizations are unvaccinated people. The dashboard comes as state hospital officials warn that an uptick in COVID-19 cases is putting stress on the statewide healthcare system.
