Kentucky passes 1 million COVID-19 cases

Omicron Variant Continues to Surge; Positivity rate exceeds 30%; 75% of adult Kentuckians have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine

By Crystal Staley/Scottie Ellis

Frankfort, KY -. On Tuesday, January 18, 2022, Gov. Andy Beshear said that Kentucky has surpassed 1 million total COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic, with 1,014,703 total cases as of Tuesday.

The Governor also announced the state's highest ever day for newly reported cases on Saturday - 14,896 - as well as the highest ever test positivity rate Tuesday - 30.25%.

"The increase in cases is severe, by far more than any other surge we've had," said Gov. Beshear. "But the good news is, 75% of Kentuckians 18 and up have been vaccinated. I think that's a pretty big deal. Three quarters of everyone in Kentucky who can make their own health care decisions have decided to get vaccinated. That is an overwhelming majority. Hopefully this encourages even more people to get that shot of hope."
