22 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Russell County Wednesday

The Lake Cumberland District Health Department reported 22 new cases in Russell County on Wednesday. There are now 117 active cases in Russell County with four individuals hospitalized.

Full report from LCDHD below.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 9.62%.

Deaths: We are sad to report 3 new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 134 deaths resulting in a 1.51% mortality rate (about 1 in 66) among known cases. This compares with a 1.06% mortality rate at the state level, and a 1.97% morality rate at the national level. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones.

Hospitalizations: We presently have 96 cases* in the hospital. This is 11 more than yesterday. We have had a total of 557 hospitalizations resulting in a 6.28% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 16) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 5.46%. The latest state data shows that 86% of ICU beds and an unreported % of ventilator capacity are being utilized. (*This number is an estimation. Due to the high numbers, we only check with the hospitals on Fridays now. Therefore, the best time to see the most accurate hospital data will be in the Saturday News Brief.)

Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 8,870 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 4.25% of our total population have 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.

Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 133 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 15; Casey: 5; Clinton: 7; Cumberland: 3; Green: 3; McCreary: 12; Pulaski: 42; Russell: 12; Taylor: 12; and, Wayne: 22. In all, we have released 85.4% of our total cases.

Active (Current) Cases: We added 150 more cases today than we released historic cases. Taking all things into account, this leaves us with 1159 active cases in our district across all 10 of our district’s 10 counties. On 12/02/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1159.

Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Long-term Care/Residential Facilities, Businesses, Family, and Schools. Of our active cases, 10% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).

New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 286 today: Adair: 23; Casey: 19; Clinton: 32; Cumberland: 7; Green: 17; McCreary: 34; Pulaski: 60; Russell: 22; Taylor: 48; and, Wayne: 24. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.018. This means our total case count is projected to double every 39.45 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/02/2020 when we added 288 cases. Today’s new cases include:

A close look at our numbers will appear that our McCreary and Pulaski numbers are off today. That is because we removed a case from each county that did not meet case definition. This caused are total case count to go up 2 less than our new case count.

The deaths we report today are a 77-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski; a 50-year-old female from Pulaski who had been hospitalized; and, a 95-year-old female long-term care resident from Pulaski.

It has been a challenging day. We have had meetings with area hospitals, nursing homes, and emergency management services. Many are becoming overwhelmed and are having staffing and supply issues. So please, let’s all do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing our face coverings, avoiding crowds (especially in confined spaces), social distancing when around others, increasing our hand hygiene, increasing our general sanitation, and by avoiding the touching of our faces.

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 8,870 cumulative confirmed cases and there have been 188,877 confirmed COVID-19 cases across all 120 Kentucky Counties as of today (this includes 186,765 statewide plus 2,112 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor’s/Department for Public Health’s daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working tirelessly, including nights and weekends, to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact, and to follow-up daily with positive cases. Additionally, we are striving diligently to follow-up on business-related complaints regarding noncompliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders. We are also working with any community partner that requests assistance for prevention or post-exposure planning/response.
