Governor's Friday update

By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear on Friday updated Kentuckians on the state's continuing efforts to fight the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) in the commonwealth.

"We've got to come together and never make one another the enemy," said Gov. Beshear. "Let's step up and meet our challenge. We're all called to be heroes in our time."

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Sept. 11, Gov. Beshear reported that there are at least 55,704 cases in Kentucky, 948 of which were newly reported Friday. One hundred fifty-one of the newly reported cases were from children ages 18 and younger, of which 24 were children ages 5 and under. The youngest was a 1-month-old from Jefferson County.



"This is the third highest number of positive cases we've ever had in a single day," said Gov. Beshear. "Our positivity rate is also going up."

Unfortunately, Gov. Beshear reported nine new deaths Friday, raising the total to 1,044 Kentuckians lost to the virus.

The deaths reported Friday include a 67-year-old woman from Barren County; an 85-year-old man from Christian County; a 62-year-old man from Hopkins County; an 82-year-old woman from Lincoln County; a 76-year-old woman from Marion County; a 58-year-old man from Oldham County; a 76-year-old man from Pulaski County; and two women, ages 78 and 82, from Todd County.

"Remember other people's health and lives are on the line and we need you to do your part," said Gov. Beshear. "Do your patriotic duty. Wear your mask. Social distance. So little is being asked of us in this crisis. It just takes a little bit to be a hero right now."

As of Friday, there have been at least 960,430 coronavirus tests performed in Kentucky. The positivity rate currently stands at 4.70%. At least 10,822 Kentuckians have recovered from the virus.
