NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee reported a record number of new virus cases on Monday with 3,314, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

That brings the total number of active cases in Tennessee to more than 65,000. Shelby County had the most cases statewide with 14,163. It was followed closely by Davidson County with 13,976 total cases. Rutherford County had the third highest number of cases with 3,755, followed by Hamilton with 3,535.

Two smaller Tennessee counties continue to lead the country in cases per capita, according to data compiled by The Associated Press. Trousdale County has the highest number of cases per capita in the U.S. with 1,510 active cases in a population of 9,573. Lake County is second with 696 cases in a population of 7,526. Both counties are homes to state prisons that saw large outbreaks of the new coronavirus in May and June, although the current numbers are nearly all from community transmission.

Monday's new cases numbers top Tennessee's previous one-day total of 2,451 recorded on Thursday. Monday saw eight new deaths from COVID-19 in Tennessee, bringing the total number of deaths from the pandemic to 749.
