LCDHD Weekly COVID-19 Public Information Brief 6/21/2021

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Good morning, everyone. Please be patient with us as we attempt to try a weekly reporting mode for a few weeks, hoping that our numbers stay low. We are trying to sync our reporting schedule with the state's reports (which are also being switched to a less frequent model).

Including suspect cases, we added 41 new cases this week compared to 74 new cases the week prior. We had 34 active cases Friday compared to 69 last Friday. We had 4 hospitalized cases Friday compared to 4 last Friday. Though we reported the 4 historic deaths, we experienced no COVID-19 related deaths this week. Our 7-day-average incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 is 2.80 today compared to 5.05 last Friday.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 2.09%.


Deaths: We are happy to report no new deaths this week. We have experienced a total of 458 deaths resulting in a 2.02% mortality rate (about 1 in 50) among known cases. This compares with a 1.55% mortality rate at the state level and a 1.79% mortality rate at the national level.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 4 cases in the hospital. This is the same number of hospitalizations we reported last week. We have had a total of 1,272 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.61% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.07%. The latest data shows that 91.11% of Lake Cumberland's ICU beds are filled, and 25.37% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 22,668 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 10.85% 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, 0.53% are reinfections, and 1.75% contracted the virus after having received at least 1 dose of the vaccine.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 77 cases this week from isolation. In all, we have released 97.8% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We now have 34 active cases in our district across 8 of our district's 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,334.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Restaurants, Medical Facilities, and Family. Of our active cases, 3% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 41 this week. Our new cases (including suspect cases) are as follows: Adair: 6; Casey: 5; Green: 2; McCreary: 1; Pulaski: 21; Russell: 2; Taylor: 3; and, Wayne: 1. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.0003. This means our total case count is projected to double every 2622.9 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases. This week's new cases include:
