Kentucky Now Over 120 Cases of COVID-19

21 news cases of the Coronavirus were confirmed yesterday in Kentucky, bringing the state’s total confirmed cases to 124.   Also yesterday, Governor Andy Beshear confirmed that an 82-year-old Lexington woman died who had tested positive for Coronavirus and who had other health issues.   

As of Monday afternoon, there have been at least 499 deaths nationwide.    Public health officials say a majority of people who get the disease do not become seriously ill — many are asymptomatic, but the disease is easily transmitted and can lead to serious complications, especially for those who are older than 60, have a compromised immune system or have heart or lung problems.

Also yesterday, the Lake Cumberland District Health Department in Somerset confirmed that two persons had tested positive, one person was presumptively positive, and test results were pending for a fourth person.   All four of those persons are from Pulaski county.
