Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said Friday that the Bluegrass State had seen its highest number of new positive COVID-19 cases yet.

3,173 new cases of the virus were reported in Kentucky on Friday, continuing the surge of new daily cases that Gov. Beshear is referring to as "concerning" and "deadly."

“Like almost every state in America, we are seeing a surge here in Kentucky that is concerning and deadly,” said Gov. Beshear. “But like every state in America, the power to stop it is in our hands.

Now, the state of Kentucky is reporting 132,844 total cases of COVID-19.

With 97 of Kentucky's 120 counties now in the Red Zone on the state's COVID-19 Incidence Rate map, Beshear again pleaded with Kentuckians to do everything in their power to reduce the spread of the virus and follow his Red Zone Recommendations.

“This is the toughest spot we’ve been in so far," said Gov. Beshear. "Please follow those red zone county recommendations and school recommendations. You must do your part. If you are not wearing a mask, you are putting yourself at personal risk. We cannot let this escalation continue. Everybody’s got to pull their weight. Come on, Team Kentucky."

"Too many of us are hurting and too many of us are dying," Gov. Beshear said, reporting 25 more COVID-19 deaths throughout Kentucky.
