COVID-19 Cases on the Rise Again Across Kentucky

Gov. Andy Beshear reported an upswing in coronavirus cases across Kentucky on Friday, but cautioned that it’s too soon to reach any conclusions about the sudden surge.

The governor announced 283 more virus cases, increasing the statewide total to more than 9,460 cases since the pandemic began. Despite the one-day upswing, the state averaged 158 new cases the past four days — a decline from recent weeks.

Beshear also reported nine additional virus-related deaths in Kentucky, raising the state’s death count to at least 418.
