Kentucky’s coronavirus case count hit records highs, again, this week.
Gov. Andy Beshear on Sunday announced 1,462 new COVID-19 cases, which brought the weekly total to 9,335 — the highest weekly total since the pandemic began. The highest daily total was recorded on Saturday, and Sunday’s total was the highest ever for a Sunday, which generally bring a dip in confirmed tests.
The three deaths announced on Sunday bring the state’s death toll to 1,407 since the pandemic hit the commonwealth in March. On Sunday, deaths were recorded in Fayette, County, Grayson County, and Spencer County.
