FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Earlier today, Gov. Andy Beshear held a press conference where he announced Kentucky was up to 22 confirmed cases of COVID-19. A few hours after the press conference began, Beshear's office announced that the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Kentucky is now at 25.

The 25 cases are spread across seven counties. Two of the three new cases are in Fayette County, meaning Fayette County and Jefferson County both possess seven cases, the most of any county in Kentucky. Harrison (six cases), Montgomery (two), Nelson (one), Clark (one) and Bourbon County (one) are the other counties in Kentucky with at least one case of coronavirus.

This morning, Beshear announced the Bourbon County patient passed away; coronavirus was not the only factor in his passing.
