Covid-19 Cases in The Lake Cumberland District Friday Update

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 8.86%.

Deaths: We are sad to report 11 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 175 deaths resulting in a 1.63% mortality rate (about 1 in 61) among known cases. This compares with a 1% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.87% mortality 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 66 cases* in the hospital. This is 34 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 641 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.98% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 17) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.15%. The latest data shows that 97.8% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 36.8% of ventilator capicity is 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 10,711 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 5.13% 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 203 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 33; Casey: 16; Clinton: 11; Green: 7; McCreary: 21; Pulaski: 74; Russell: 10; Taylor: 21; and, Wayne: 10. In all, we have released 85.9% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: Taking into account deaths and releases, our active cases decreased by 11 more than the new cases we added today. This leaves us with 1332 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1335.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Family, Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, and Schools. Of our active cases, 8% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 203 today: Adair: 8; Casey: 15; Clinton: 13; Cumberland: 9; Green: 11; McCreary: 26; Pulaski: 53; Russell: 22; Taylor: 19; and, Wayne: 27. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.021. This means our total case count is projected to double every 33.86 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/02/2020 when we added 288 cases. Today’s new cases include:

A close look at the data will appear that McCreary’s numbers are off by one. That is because we re-added a case from a previous day we accidentally deleted.

It is tragic that we have to report 11 Lake Cumberland deaths today: a 77-year-old male from Adair who had been hospitalized; an 85-year-old male from Casey who had been hospitalized; a 76-year-old female from McCreary who had been hospitalized; a 62-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; an 85-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; a 77-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; a 76-year-old male long-term care resident from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; a 94-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski; an 86-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski; an 80-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; and, an 89-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski who had been hospitalized.

The most recent set of restrictions by the Governor is set to expire Sunday night, though many limitations still exist. Just because some restrictions are being lifted, please do not take that as a signal everything can go back to normal. While we are not in favor of lockdowns, we are neither in favor of behaving as if we aren’t in the middle of a pandemic. Everyone should follow the precautions to avoid crowds, to social distance, and to mask.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 10,711 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 219,216 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 217,120 statewide plus 2,096 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.
