Davidson County’s daily average coronavirus case count keeps coming down, with Nashville City’s weekly average of the new cases being similar to what it was around the start of the epidemic. Those findings are as per the Metro Public Health Department’s recently released data.

As of June 01, 2021, the department puts the city’s weekly average of the cases at around 30 per day, or 4.5 for every 100,000 people residing here. The last period the city was at the level was in late March 2020, the department’s spokesperson Brian Todd told the Nashville Scene.

The information comes only some days after that department stopped its daily coronavirus-related briefing processes. The department stopped it based on not only reducing case rates but also increasing COVID-19 vaccination rates.

As per the department’s information, the overall number of fully vaccinated Nashville residents is 282,919, about 41% of the County’s population. Around 6% more residents have got the first of their two COVID-19 vaccine dosages. That means Nashville’s 306,826 residents are partially vaccinated. That puts Nashville some percentages less of the goal that its Mayor, Democrat John Cooper, expected to achieve in the recent past.

For the last 15 months, 99,350 is the total coronavirus case count in Nashville, and 924 city inhabitants have died due to coronavirus. Metro stopped its entire epidemic restrictions last month.
