Kentucky’s First Coronavirus (COVID-19) Case in Harrison County

Published on Mar 7, 2020 at 4:10 pm in News.

On Friday, March 6, 2020, the first case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Kentucky was confirmed in Harrison County. The individual, whose name has not been released, was first treated at Harrison Memorial Hospital and then airlifted to a hospital in Lexington. They were a resident in a nursing home. A team of doctors will be sent to Harrison County to figure out how the infected person contracted the virus and who they have been in contact with recently.

In response to this news, Gov. Steve Beshear declared a level 4 State of Emergency for the state of Kentucky on Friday night. Local nursing homes in the area have also stopped allowing their residents to have visitors. This is due to the fact that nursing home residents and other elderly and/or those with compromised immune systems are often the most susceptible of contracting any type of virus. In Washington State earlier this week, COVID-19’s contamination into one nursing home led to multiple deaths.
