Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District


Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 9.93%.

 

Deaths: We are sad to report 5 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 143 deaths resulting in a 1.54% mortality rate (about 1 in 65) among known cases. This compares with a 1.05% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.95% 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 71 cases* in the hospital. This is 29 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 576 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.2% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.44%. The latest state data shows that 86% of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 9,283 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 4.44% 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 158 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 16; Casey: 10; Clinton: 14; Cumberland: 6; Green: 8; McCreary: 20; Pulaski: 48; Russell: 9; Taylor: 13; and, Wayne: 14. In all, we have released 85.6% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 42 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1191 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/04/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1191.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Businesses, Family, and Schools. Of our active cases, 9% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 205 today: Adair: 12; Casey: 7; Clinton: 11; Cumberland: 3; Green: 8; McCreary: 21; Pulaski: 51; Russell: 33; Taylor: 32; and, Wayne: 27. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.021. This means our total case count is projected to double every 33.45 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/02/2020 when we added 288 cases.

A close look at the data would appear that our Pulaski and Russell numbers are both off by 1 today. This is because we removed 2 duplicate entries. This resulted in our daily total case count increase being 2 less than our daily new case count increase.

 

The deaths we report today are a 97-year-old male from Pulaski who had been hospitalized and had been an assisted living facility resident; a 90-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski; an 89-year-old male long-term care resident from Russell; and an 89-year-old female long-term care resident from Russell who had been released from public health observation as no longer contagious, but later succumbed to lasting complications from the illness; and, a 90-year-old female long-term care resident from Russell.

 

On top of the deaths, today we set a new record for active cases, 1,191. Also, area hospitals are now joining us in asking the public to mask and social distance, “Please Trust Us, Doctors Ask“. So 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 9,283 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 196,438 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 194,193 statewide plus 2,245 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.
