Knox County COVID-19 Data

(Data is updated as of )

KCHD provides Knox County COVID-19 data to help keep the community informed of the local situation. These numbers are updated Monday through Friday.


Data Overview and Case Demographics

Click here for more information about the data.

Numbers may vary slightly from week to week as KCHD epidemiologists and other epidemiologists throughout the state complete routine data reviews of cases, which can result in the transfer of some cases from their initial reported jurisdiction. This is standard operating procedure. The adjustments that often result from these reviews are expected given the nature of real-time data reporting with COVID-19, which is not normally how health metrics are reported in the U.S. Typically, there is a several-month lag before health data is reported.

Cases:

i. Probable cases are those that:
‐ Meet clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19
‐ Meet presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence.

Probable cases are included in demographic data.

ii. Information about hospitalization status is gathered at the time of diagnosis, therefore this information may be incomplete. This number indicates the number of Knox County residents that were ever hospitalized during their illness.
