Governor: Lowest positivity rate since Nov 6
By Crystal Staley/Sebastian Kitchen
Frankfort, KY - On Friday, Gov. Andy Beshear announced the state's positivity rate declined again to 6.95%, the lowest rate since Nov. 6.
"It looks like we're going to have fewer cases than last week which would give us five straight weeks of declining cases. The positivity rate also continues to decline," said Gov. Beshear. "This says you're doing the right things and we're headed in the right direction. But even if you've been vaccinated, we have to continue to wear masks and social distance until we can defeat this thing once and for all."
As of 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, Gov. Beshear reported the following COVID-19 numbers:
Also on Friday, Gov. Beshear visited the Louisville Regional Vaccination Site at Broadbent Arena for LouVax International Community Day (photo here) and the Lexington Vaccine Public Awareness Campaign (photos here and here) at the Consolidated Baptist Church on Russell Cave Road. Both events sought to promote equitable access of the vaccine and encouraged all Kentucky communities to roll up their sleeves for the shot of hope.
In Louisville, the Governor said, "Being in this building, seeing what is behind us, is a moving experience. It's hard to put it into words. You see compassion; you see hope; you even see victory. This is a special place, filled with special people who are coming together to get us to the other side of the greatest challenge that we have faced in our lifetimes. Just being here lifts you up, helps you breathe in, gets you ready to fight that next day, and lets us absolutely know that we are going to get through this, we're going to make it to the other side, and we're going to defeat COVID-19."
In Lexington, the Governor thanked faith leaders saying, "From the start of this pandemic, our faith leaders have stepped up to protect their congregations and their communities. So often, you lead by example in so many parts of our lives, and your efforts to keep our people safe during this time are inspiring."
The Governor added, "I am determined to do what I can - now - to make sure historical wrongs like an unequal access to health care do not carry forward. Health care is a basic human right and this principle is one of the basic guiding values of this administration."
The administration continues to listen and work to address vaccine equity. Thursday, Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman announced new community partnerships that aim to help remove vaccine barriers.
