From the LCDHD Wednesday evening:

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 4.99%.
Deaths: We are pleased to report no new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 79 deaths resulting in a 2.06% mortality rate among known cases. This compares with a 1.5% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.67% morality rate at the national level.

We have had a total of 301 hospitalizations resulting in a 7.86% hospitalization rate among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 7.39%. The latest state data shows that 70.15% of ICU beds and 28.77% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.
Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 3,828 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 1.83% 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.

Active (Current) Cases: We added 41 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 458 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 10/21/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 458.
Where are Cases Tied to: The most common areas to where we are seeing cases tied are (in descending order): Businesses, Schools, Places of Worship, and Medical Facilities.

Unfortunately, we broke our all-time single-day new case record. Today we are reporting 76 new cases. The last record, 75, was supplemented by 3 significant nursing home clusters. Our new record is without this. So, most of our current spread is “community-spread”. Also, our hospitalized cases is again getting high at 26. On a bright note, while we still have 7 counties in the “red-critical” range of community-spread, Pulaski did drop into the “yellow-community-spread” range.
Please, let’s all continue to 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 3,828 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 91,142 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 90,996 statewide plus 146 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.
