LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 07/19/2020
By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department
New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 18 today: Adair: 2; Clinton: 2; Pulaski: 11; Taylor: 2; and, Wayne: 1. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.04. This means our total case count is projected to double every 17.67 days. The new cases include:
Deaths: We are sad to report 1 new death today from Casey. We have experienced a total of 34 deaths resulting in a 4.4% mortality rate among known cases. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.
Hospitalizations: We presently have 14 cases in the hospital. We have had a total of 94 hospitalizations resulting in a 12.3% hospitalization rate among known cases. The latest state data shows that 70% of ICU beds and 20% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.
On the upside, we released 41 cases today as recovered.
Released (Recovered) Cases: We released 41 cases today from isolation (recovered). Released cases include: Adair: 5; Casey: 10; Cumberland: 1; Green: 3; Pulaski: 6; Russell: 6; Taylor: 7; and, Wayne: 3. In all, we have released 63.9% of our total cases.
Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 765 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This has resulted in the health department reaching out to over 2780 individuals during our contact tracing.
Active (Current) Cases: Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 242 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district's 10 counties. Of those active cases, 48 are asymptomatic.
The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 765 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 23,271 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of 07/19/20 (this includes 23,161 statewide plus 110 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.
