Throughout the State of Kentucky on Tuesday, there were 14 new COVID-19 deaths reported.
"The tough part about today's report is we've lost 14 additional Kentuckians," said Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear during his COVID-19 update on Tuesday. "It's a big number, and these days are hard when we have this amount of loss."
So far, a total of 1,256 Kentuckians are now confirmed by the Kentucky State Department for Health to have died from COVID-19. KDPH also lists 13 total 'probable' deaths throughout the state.
"That's a lot of individuals," Beshear said. "Each one is more than an age and a county. Each one is a special life - a special Kentuckian that we've lost."
