**Health Minister Sarah Courtney and Acting Public Health Director Dr Scott McKeown say a manual counting error meant incorrect information about case numbers was shared with media outlets on Sunday night. Originally nine new cases and a state total of 197 were reported by the Public Health Department. That was incorrect and the story below has been updated with the correct information.
Tasmania recorded a total of seven new cases of coronavirus since 6pm Saturday and the state's total number of confirmed cases now stands at 195.
Public Health Director Dr Mark Veitch said all of the new cases were from the North-West.
