Two new COVID-19 deaths in Kentucky's Ohio County were reported on Thursday, July 23, by the Green River District Health Department (GRDHD).

GRDHD monitors COVID-19 data in each of the seven Kentucky counties within its district - five of which had new positive cases of COVID-19 as of Thursday.

Here are the counties within the GRDHD district that had new cases on Thursday:

  • Daviess County: 18 new positive cases
  • Henderson County: 5 new positive cases
  • Ohio County: 4 new positive cases
  • Union County: 1 new positive case
  • Webster County: 1 new positive cases

That's 29 new positive cases of COVID-19 combined - bringing the GRDHD district's total number of identified cases to 1,362.

According to GRDHD, there are currently 21 individuals in the district hospitalized with COVID-19. To date, 123 individuals in the district with COVID-19 have required hospitalization.

The district-wide recovery rate is 79.5% - or 1,083 total individuals recovered.

Here's a breakdown of each of the Kentucky counties within the GRDHD district:

Previously, an Ohio County nursing home had reported a spike in COVID-19 cases - though it's unclear whether or not any of Thursday's new cases or deaths are out of that long-term care facility.

As of Wednesday, July 22, there were 24,540 total positive cases of COVID-19 and 677 total COVID-19 deaths statewide in Kentucky.
