Tennessee leads the nation in new COVID-19 cases per capita, new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found.  According to data compiled by The New York Times over the last week, the state has seen an average of over 8,300 new coronavirus infections each day. Health experts believe part of the alarming number has to do with a low rate of vaccinations, particularly among children.  (UTHSC’s Nick Hysmith interviewed).
