FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Gov. Andy Beshear announced in a press release that there are at least 11,287 COVID-19 cases and 470 coronavirus-related deaths in the state of Kentucky.

Saturday's results include 319 new cases and four new deaths.

“The virus is still out there. I know we’re tired. I know we all just want to have a normal summer,” said Gov. Beshear. “But we’ve already saved so many lives as Team Kentucky and we can’t let up now.”

The deaths reported Saturday include a 73-year-old man from Clay County, 73- and 90-year old men from Jefferson County and a 70-year-old woman from Logan County.

“These deaths are another tragic loss for all of Kentucky,” said Gov. Beshear. “Light your houses up green, ring your bells tomorrow, and most important, continue taking action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect your neighbors.”

At least 3,344 Kentuckians have recovered from the virus.
