New projections for Tennessee suggest that COVID-19 could return with a second wave three times worse than the last.
According to projections compiled by healthdata.org, Tennessee is predicted to see a return of the virus, resulting in an additional 1,500 deaths between now and October 1st. The death total, to date, is around 485.

Healthdata.org noted that the likely rise is attributed to several factors: "These forecasts indicate that COVID-19 infections could rise between August and September as we enter the fall season, human contact increases, social distancing mandates continue to be relaxed. We assume that schools will start to reopen in mid-August for in-person instruction, resulting in further increased mobility thereafter. All of these factors are likely to contribute to an increase in COVID-19 deaths."
What will this mean for the next few months in West Tennessee? Will the state, counties, and cities return to lock downs? Or will we, as a society, just accept that the virus is going to infect and ultimately kill a certain percentage of those who come into contact with it, similar to how we have adapted to flu death numbers?
Regardless of what measures are taken, there is still no doubt that financial stability will continue to be rocked as businesses, employers, the workforce, and society in general will continue to alter their behaviors in a way that affects the economy. The end result is that a larger percentage of families will find themselves cash-strapped and overburdened with debt. Legal remedies are often the best solution in order to reset home budgets, overcome the COVID-19 economic impact, and put families on better footing for the future.
