During his Sunday briefing, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said that the state has experienced the highest one day increase in new coronavirus cases, “that we’ve ever had.”
He reported 273 new cases, bringing the state’s total to 2,960.
The governor also announced four new deaths, which put Kentucky’s total death toll at 148.
“And while that’s significantly less than what we’ve had in other days, again four individuals, four families that are, oh so important,” Beshear said, encouraging people to light up their homes and buildings green to honor those who have died.
