One Thought to “Confirmed COVID-19 Cases in Tennessee Double This Week”

    Did the actual number double or did they just happen to be recorded this week? Doubling is a relative term and has a scary connotation. By double 2 yields only 4. That is one reason that I really do not like statistics that use percentages to make a point. ! is 100% of 1 but 1 is only 0.1% of 1000.
