Governor Andy Beshear announced Wednesday afternoon at his daily Covid-19 press conference that there is only one county in Kentucky that has not reported any cases of the virus.
That county is Robertson County. Gov. Beshear also stated that several counties in Kentucky have a high number of cases (shown below in dark red).
That being said, Gov. Beshear says that Kentucky cases are still going down and there is notable decline in cases as each day goes by...but those numbers will be carefully monitored. “What we’ll be looking for now is if we are going to go up and down, more asymptomatic cases, we’re going to look at this and other numbers every day. We believe it is controlled. We’d like to see zero…but 191 doesn’t rise to the high concern level.”
