During his weekly Team Kentucky update, Gov. Andy Beshear told the public how the state will continue to help hospitals.

The Governor said more than two dozen of these hospitals will be receiving aid from the Kentucky National Guard.

As of Thursday, Kentucky has a total of 93 available adult ICU beds. Out of 96 hospitals in the state, 66 are experiencing critical staffing shortages.

"The number one thing we can do to get through this is to get vaccinated," said Gov. Beshear.

He went on to say, “I think the tough conversations we’re having with those we love who may be hesitant to get the vaccine are making a difference, but we need a lot more of those conversations.”

Kentucky officials say the number of young people being admitted to hospitals has increased significantly because of the Delta variant.

Currently, 2,631,420 Kentuckians, or 69 percent of all of those eligable, have received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine.
