LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 6/8/2021
By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department
REMINDER - As cases are continuing to decline for the most part and we are fortunate enough to see the majority of our counties in the green or yellow designations, this will be the final week of these reports being sent out nightly. LCDHD will continue to update the local health department webpage with current statistics and relevant information for your use. Please know how very much we appreciate all you have done for your families, patients, employees and citizens during this pandemic!
Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 2.12%.
Deaths: We are happy to report no new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 453 deaths resulting in a 2% mortality rate (about 1 in 50) among known cases. This compares with a 1.54% mortality rate at the state level and a 1.79% mortality rate at the national level.
Hospitalizations: We presently have 11 cases in the hospital. This is equal to what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 1,269 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.61% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.06%. The latest data shows that 68.89% of Lake Cumberland's ICU beds are filled, and 20.97% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.
Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 22,602 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 10.82% of our total population has 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. Of our total cases, 0.52% are reinfections, and 1.59% contracted the virus after having received at least 1 dose of the vaccine.
Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 5 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 2; Casey: 1; Green: 1; and, McCreary: 1. Pulaski: 2; Russell: -4; and, Taylor: 2. In all, we have released 97.6% of our total cases.
Active (Current) Cases: We added 14 more cases today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 79 active cases in our district across 9 of our district's 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,335.
Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Family, Businesses, Medical Facilities, and Schools. Of our active cases, 8% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).
New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 19 today. Our new cases are as follows: Adair: 1; Casey: 2; Green: 4; McCreary: 2; Pulaski: 8; Russell: -3; and, Taylor: 5. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.0007. This means our total case count is projected to double every 1044.02 days.
