LCDHD COVID-19 Public Information Brief 6/4/2021
By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department
We added fewer new cases this week (76) than for the same time period last week (106) so our 7-day-average incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 went down to 5.19 today compared to 7.30 last Friday. Unfortunately, the last 3 days of this week showed an increase in cases.
Hopefully, that will not continue into next week. We experienced 2 deaths related to COVID-19 this week. We have 74 active cases today compared with 87 last Friday. We have 12 cases hospitalized today compared with 13 last Friday. Our vaccination numbers are creeping upward, but we still have no counties with an uptake rate higher than the state average.
Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 2.47%.
Deaths: We are pleased to report no new deaths today. We have experienced a total of 453 deaths resulting in a 2.01% mortality rate (about 1 in 50) among known cases. This compares with a 1.54% mortality rate at the state level and a 0% mortality rate at the national level.
Hospitalizations: We presently have 12 cases in the hospital. This is 2 less than what we reported yesterday. We have had a total of 1,265 hospitalizations resulting in a 5.6% hospitalization rate (about 1 in 18) among known cases. The state hospitalization rate is 4.97%. The latest data shows that 86.67% of Lake Cumberland's ICU beds are filled, and 12.9% of ventilator capacity is being utilized.
Total (Cumulative) Cases: The Lake Cumberland District has experienced a total of 22,580 cases since the onset of the outbreak. This means that 10.81% of our total population has been a confirmed case. However, we do not know how many additional people may have had COVID-19 and were either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic and never tested. Of our total cases, 0.51% are reinfections, and 1.57% contracted the virus after having received at least 1 dose of the vaccine.
Released (Not contagious) Cases: We released 19 cases today from isolation. Released cases include: Adair: 2; Casey: 2; McCreary: 3; Pulaski: 8; Russell: 2; and, Taylor: 2. In all, we have released 97.7% of our total cases.
Active (Current) Cases: We added 1 more case today than we had deceased and/or released cases. This leaves us with 74 active cases in our district across 9 of our district's 10 counties. On 12/10/2020 we were at our peak number of active cases, 1,336.
Where Did Cases Visit Prior to Isolation: The most common places cases visited prior to isolation are (in descending order): Family, Businesses, Medical Facilities, and Schools. Of our active cases, 9% can not be tied back to another known case (community-spread cases).
New Cases: We report that our total case count has increased by 20 today: Adair: 5; Casey: 1; Green: 1; Pulaski: 9; Taylor: 3; and, Wayne: 1. Our current new case growth rate is: 1.0005. This means our total case count is projected to double every 1422.37 days. The most new cases we ever added in a single day was on 12/30/2020 when we added 301 cases. Today's new cases include:
