Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 11.36%.

 

Deaths: We regret we must report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 274 deaths resulting in a 1.89% mortality rate (about 1 in 53) among known cases. This compares with a 0.99% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.7% 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 87 cases* in the hospital. This is 6 more than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 836 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.78% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 17) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.93%. The latest data shows that 91.11% of Lake Cumberland’s ICU beds are filled, and 25% of ventilator capacity 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 14,462 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 6.92% 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 138 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 5; Casey: 2; Clinton: 22; Cumberland: 7; Green: 5; McCreary: 9; Pulaski: 39; Russell: 12; Taylor: 14; and, Wayne: 23. In all, we have released 91.4% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 153 more cases today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 966 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, 1,338.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Schools, and Long-term Care/Residential Facilities. We have had 54 cases tied to Christmas gaterings, 43 tied to Thanksgiving gatherings, and 1 tied to a New Year’s event. Of our active cases, 10% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 294 today: Adair: 28; Casey: 10; Clinton: 32; Cumberland: 14; Green: 5; McCreary: 32; Pulaski: 51; Russell: 25; Taylor: 45; and, Wayne: 52. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.011. This means our total case count is projected to double every 64.68 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases.

A close look at the data will appear that the Clinton numbers are off by 1 today. This is because 1 case was removed as not meeting case definition.

 

The deaths we report today are: an 85-year-old individual from McCreary; a 66-year-old individual from Taylor who had been hospitalized; and a 93-year-old individual from Taylor who had been hospitalized.

We are being inundated with phone calls, and messages about the COVID-19 vaccine. Rather than calling or sending us messages, please read our Daily Brief and social media posts for the very latest information.

 

New cases are still very high, and our area mortality, and hospitalization rates remain high. So, 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 14,462 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 281,681 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 280,836 statewide plus 845 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 with positive cases when ready to be released. 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. Finally, we are working with all community partners regarding vaccination planning.
