Kentucky’s Coronavirus Numbers Set New Daily Highs With 242 Cases and 11 Deaths

We’re beginning to hit a stretch where the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Kentucky is spiking significantly with every passing day.

On Friday, Governor Andy Beshear confirmed new daily highs for verified cases with 242, along with the first double-digit death count, as 11 Kentuckians were announced dead.  The total number of positive cases in the Bluegrass State is now at 1,693 with 90 total reported deaths. 464 people have fully recovered and 24,288 total residents have been tested.

With Easter Sunday only a couple of days away, Beshear has repeatedly requested and required that churches do not hold service on this day. The Governor said on Friday that they were down to seven churches who still planned on holding an Easter service. As already reported on KSR, Beshear’s most notable announcement from his daily briefing was how he will take down the license plates of those church-goers, give that information to the health department, who will then force those individuals to stay quarantined in-home for 14 consecutive days.

“If you participate in a mass gathering, it’s 14 days, self-quarantined, in your home,” Beshear said sternly. “This is the only way we can make sure your decision doesn’t kill somebody else. … That your gathering doesn’t negate the efforts of every church in this state.”

If you are someone considering going to church, the entire state of Kentucky would highly recommend that you stay home.

      These supposed “Christians” should be called “church goers” instead. It’s much more accurate description bc they act nothing like Christ.

    I’m also a republican, and I didn’t vote for him in the past election. But, I think he is doing about as good a job as can be done under the circumstances. I’m sure he had other plans for the first year of his administration that didn’t include managing a pandemic killer virus. But I appreciate his take charge leadership. It is good for all of us.

    I also agree he is doing a good job, and also think Trump is doing a go job. These are terrible times.

    Close the restaurants also. One infected drive thru or curbside restaurant worker/cook/cashier can infect as many or more people as a church service. Beshear needs to be consistent with his decrees. It’s a “scientific fact” if a restaurant worker is infected, someone will die according to our governor.

    Confirmed positives will increase as the number of tests per day increase.
    How many are in the hospital? In ICU?

    The media reports everything wrong

    At no point have we been worse than Europe as a whole. This is how you fool the educated! Do percentages!!!! 400 deaths in Spain or France has to be multiplied by six!!!! Thats how much bigger we are… So at no point have we been at their rates… please realize our pop is almost as big as all of Europe… so Italy at 1000 would be like us at 6000 deaths per day.. geez..
