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."

Additionally, there were 776 new positive cases of COVID-19 reported in the Bluegrass State on Tuesday. KDPH's report now shows 81,691 total cases of COVID-19 throughout the state, with 70,080 of those cases being confirmed, and 11,611 of them being probable.
