Yesterday, Kentucky surpassed a grim milestone in the fight against Covid-19.
“We surpassed more than 10,000 Kentuckians who have lost their lives due to Covid. Now, at 10,019 Kentuckians lost. Covid has been the number three killer of Kentuckians both last year and thus far this year,” Governor Andy Beshear stated in his weekly Covid-19 briefing.
In honor of the lives lost, there will be a ceremony held this Sunday at 1 p.m. that will be live streamed via Facebook and YouTube.
