The Commonwealth of Kentucky has set a new record for covid-19 cases. Wednesday saw the highest number of cases reported in a single day, with 1,163 new cases being confirmed. However, the new number comes with a catch, as part of it is made up of numbers delayed from earlier this week, when a glitch in the reporting system gave an unusually low number.
Locally, 20 news cases of the virus were announced in the Lincoln Trail District Health Department’s service area: 8 in Hardin, 5 in Nelson, 4 in Marion, 2 in Meade, and 1 in Washington County. 282 patients are in home isolation and 19 are hospitalized.
