TAYLOR CO. COVID-19 DEATH; 158 NEW CASES IN LAKE CUMB. DISTRICT....

 

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.68%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 1 new death today. We have experienced a total of 96 deaths resulting in a 1.65% mortality rate (about 1 in 61) among known cases. This compares with a 1.24% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.28% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

 

Hospitalizations: We presently have 45 cases in the hospital. This is 3 less than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 55 on 11/07/2020. We have had a total of 405 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.94% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 14) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.51%. The latest state data shows that 71.92% of ICU beds and 31.26% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 5,832 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 2.79% of our total population have been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 102 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 11; Casey: 15; Green: 9; McCreary: 5; Pulaski: 51; Russell: 8; Taylor: 2; and, Wayne: 1. In all, we have released 82.4% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 55 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 932 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/13/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 932.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Family, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. Of our active cases, 17% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 158 today: Adair: 20; Casey: 7; Clinton: 29; Cumberland: 11; Green: 11; McCreary: 7; Pulaski: 22; Russell: 15; Taylor: 15; and, Wayne: 21. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.021. This means our total case count is projected to double every 32.71 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 11/11/2020 when we added 190 cases.

A close look at the data will show that our new cases went up by 160 but our total cases only went up by 158. That is because we removed some duplicates from days prior.

 

We are reporting 1 death in Taylor, an 85-year-old famale. We are at a record number of active cases in our district at 932. We also are about 4 days behind in case investigations and/or contact tracing. Even still, with the numbers we can report we have nine of our district’s ten counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Pulaski, Russell, Taylor, and Wayne. This leaves only McCreary in the “orange-accelerated” range.

We call upon our citizens and community leaders to step-up your efforts in regards to COVID-19. Please don’t wait until one of your loved ones dies or is hospitalized to take this seriously. Please, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 5,832 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 133,920 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 132,844 statewide plus 1,076 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. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response.
