LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 07/31/2020

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Except for the day of the Nursing Home outbreak in Adair, this was our highest day of new cases. We are now starting to see cases associated with youth sports such as little league baseball and school football summer preparations. This is just another important reminder that we should all observe the guidance.

Everyone should continue to wear their face coverings, avoid crowds as much as possible, social distance, wash their hands frequently, increase sanitation, and avoid the touching of their faces.

Deaths: We are sad to report 1 new death today from Taylor. We have experienced a total of 40 deaths resulting in a 3.7% 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 13 cases in the hospital. We have had a total of 111 hospitalizations resulting in a 10.3% hospitalization rate among known cases. The latest state data shows that 62% of ICU beds and 22% of ventilator capacity are being utilized.



Released (Recovered) Cases: We released 29 cases today from isolation (recovered). Released cases include: Adair: 6; Casey: 9; Clinton: 2; Cumberland: 1; McCreary: 4; Pulaski: 4; Russell: 1; and, Wayne: 2. In all, we have released 73.3% of our total cases.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 1,075 cases since the onset of the outbreak.

Active (Current) Cases: Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 247 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district's 10 counties. Of those active cases, 37 are asymptomatic.

We are sad to announce the loss of the 80- year-old female nursing home resident from Taylor. Our mortality rate remains high when compared to the state and national averages.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 1,075 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 30,278 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of 07/31/20 (this includes 30,151 statewide plus 127 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.
