LCDHD: Vaccination is best defense

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Including suspect cases, we added 66 new cases this week compared to 41 new cases the week prior. We have 59 active cases today compared to 31 last Friday. We have 8 hospitalized cases today compared to 2 last Friday. We are happy we experienced no COVID-19 related deaths this week. Our 7-day-average incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 is 4.50 today compared to 2.80 last Friday.

So, all in all, a week of increases. The best defense is to be vaccinated. The vaccine is plentiful in our area.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 1.79%.


Deaths: We are pleased to report no new deaths this week. We have experienced a total of 458 deaths resulting in a 2.01% mortality rate (about 1 in 50) among known cases. This compares with a 1.55% mortality rate at the state level and a 1.8% mortality rate at the national level.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 8 cases in the hospital. This is 4 more than what we reported last week. We have had a total of 1,278 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.62% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.08%. The latest data shows that 86.67% 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 22,734 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 10.88% 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, 0.55% are reinfections, and 1.76% contracted the virus after having received at least 1 dose of the vaccine.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 41 cases this week from isolation. In all, we have released 97.7% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We added 25 more cases this week than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 59 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, 1,333.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Businesses, Family, Schools, and Travel Related. Of our active cases, 12% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 66 this week. Our new cases (including suspect cases) are as follows: Adair: 2; Casey: 10; Clinton: 4; Cumberland: 3; Green: 1; McCreary: 2; Pulaski: 21; Russell: 3; Taylor: 13; and, Wayne: 7. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.0004. This means our total case count is projected to double every 1623.89 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 (excluding suspect cases) include:
