Gov. Beshear, "... We have plateaued on the positivity rate."



On Monday Kentucky Andy Beshear said new COVID-19 cases in the Commonwealth are hitting a plateau.


Governor Beshear cited the decline of new cases over the last seven weeks.


“The top line here is it does look like we’ve plateaued. That’s not a reason to think that there is another surge,” said Gov. Beshear. “It looks like we have plateaued on the positivity rate at about 5.5%. We are still at a very serious level.”


In Kentucky, children make up 25%-30% of all new COVID-19 cases.


A total of 726 new cases of COVID were reported Monday in Ky.


As of Monday, 719 people are hospitalized with 191 of those in the hospital admitted to ICU units. 105 Kentuckians are currently on ventilators.


For the week ending November fourteenth, 9,506 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the Bluegrass State.
