Gov. Beshear Provides Sunday Update on COVID-19

As of 4 p.m. June 28, Gov. Beshear said there were at least 15,232 coronavirus cases in Kentucky, 67 of which were newly reported Sunday.

“We see states in the South like Florida and Texas with rising cases and know it could happen here in Kentucky,” the Governor said. “It wasn’t anything magic that lead us to our early success. It was us truly coming together as a people and showing that the lives of other Kentuckians is more important to us than anything.”

Unfortunately, Gov. Beshear reported four new deaths Sunday, raising the total to 558 Kentuckians lost to the virus.

“Let’s remember to light up our homes and businesses green and ring our bells each morning at 10 a.m. to let these families know we care about them,” the Governor said.

The deaths reported Sunday include two women, ages 30 and 84, from Fayette County; an 81-year-old man from Franklin County; and a 93-year-old man from Shelby County.
