9/13/21 COVID-19 Update:
For the week of 9/4 through 9/10, we are reporting 595 new cases, 21 of which were hospitalized at the time of reporting. 112 of these cases were breakthrough cases (see below for more information about breakthrough cases).
Our confirmed deaths remain at 87, but we continue to have several deaths pending confirmation. The pending deaths will be reviewed by the state COVID-19 death review panel.
As of this report we have 50 total hospitalized* cases (these hospitalizations are throughout several Kentucky hospitals).
112 of the cases for this week (9/4 through 9/10) were in fully vaccinated individuals meaning 483 of the cases were in unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals. That’s a breakthrough rate of 18.8% for the week.
We remain in the “red” zone with 127.6 cases per 100,000 population.
