Kentucky Sets Daily High for New Coronavirus Cases

November 12, 2020

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky has posted a new daily high for confirmed coronavirus cases as the governor implores people to wear masks to counter the accelerating outbreak.

Gov. Andy Beshear on Wednesday reported 2,700 new virus cases and 14 morel virus-related deaths as hospitalizations for COVID-19 continued to rise.

The governor warned in a social media video that “this entire state is in danger.” He again implored Kentuckians to wear masks when in public and to follow other recommended measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus.

Eighty of Kentucky’s 120 counties are in the most serious category for COVID-19 incidence. People in those counties are asked to avoid gatherings of any size and stay home except for essential activities. Schools are urged to hold only virtual classes, and businesses should allow employees to work from home when possible.
