The last couple of days marks two milestones for Lake Cumberland. Yesterday, we surpassed 1,000 total confirmed cases. Also, today was the first day since the onset of the outbreak that we added new cases in all ten of our counties. Some counties are having new cases nearly every day (Pulaski has had new cases every day in July).
We now stand at 1,030 cumulative total cases for our district. That is a little less than 0.5% of our population, leaving 99.5% of our population to go (of course, there are some number of people who have had it we don’t know about). But, at 0.5% of our population having had COVID-19, we have had 39 deaths and 109 hospitalizations. You can do the math and see just how bad this can be if the growth rate grows too quickly.
The mortality rate for Lake Cumberland is 3.79%. It is 2.49% for Kentucky; 3.39% for the US, and 3.91% for the world. The average age of death in our district is 79 (with the youngest being 50). The hospitalization rate for Lake Cumberland is 10.58%; and for Kentucky, 11.24%. The average age of hospitalization for our district is 68 (with the youngest being 7).
We remind everyone that it extremely important to do everything you can to reduce your risk and the risk for those you love. Everyone should continue wearing their face coverings, avoiding crowds, social distancing, washing their hands frequently, increasing sanitation, and avoiding the touching of their faces.
The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 1,030 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 29,501 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of 07/30/20 (this includes 29,386 statewide plus 115 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.
