Deaths: We regret we must report 1 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 104 deaths resulting in a 1.52% mortality rate (about 1 in 66) among known cases. This compares with a 1.17% mortality rate at the state level, and a 2.16% morality 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 48 cases in the hospital. This is 4 less than yesterday. The most hospitalizations we have had at any one time was 53 on 11/07/2020. We have had a total of 441 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.44% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 6.17%. The latest state data shows that 71.29% of ICU beds and unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized.

 

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 6,848 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 3.28% 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 179 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 11; Casey: 10; Clinton: 11; Cumberland: 7; Green: 15; McCreary: 6; Pulaski: 47; Russell: 21; Taylor: 34; and, Wayne: 17. In all, we have released 82.3% of our total cases.

 

Active (Current) Cases: We added 94 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1110 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 11/19/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1110.

 

Where Did Cases Visit Pior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Schools, and Family. Of our active cases, 14% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

 

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 274 today: Adair: 9; Casey: 21; Clinton: 10; Cumberland: 16; Green: 17; McCreary: 17; Pulaski: 99; Russell: 33; Taylor: 33; and, Wayne: 19. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.027. This means our total case count is projected to double every 25.71 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 11/19/2020 when we added 274 cases.

The death we announce today was a 48-year-old male from Russell.

 

We shattered yesterday’s new case record! Yesteday we added 191 cases, today 274. We also have a record number of active cases, 1,110. All 10 of our counties remain solidly in the “red-critical” range of community-spread. Unfortunately, the massive exponential growth we warned everyone about is here. All of the complacency, skepticism, and insistence that the gudiance doesn’t apply to us or our situation has caught up with us. Unfortunately, and bewilderingly, while many will face this challenge and do what is necessary, some will still cast doubt and resist efforts to slow the spread of this devestating disease.

 

There is hope! It is within our power to impact the spread of COVID-19 before our medical infratructures become overwhelmed. Citizens, commuinty-leaders, church-leaders, let’s step-up or game. Please, let’s everyone 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 6,848 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 149,808 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 148,390 statewide plus 1,418 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.
