You might note that the new case list above doesn’t match the new case summary above that. We removed a case from Pulaski and a case from Wayne today who turned out not to be positive cases.

 

We lost a 60-year-old female from Casey today. Also, our raw number of those hospitalized went up. While our hospitalization rate in near the state average, our mortality rate continues to be higher than state, national and world averages.

 

Our new case rate continues to be high. Please, don’t become complacent with wearing your face covering, avoiding crowds, social distancing, washing your hands frequently, increased sanitation, and with the avoidance of touching your face.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 825 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 24,637 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of 07/22/20 (this includes 24,540 statewide plus 97 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report).
 

Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up daily with positive cases.
 

Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders.
