Edmonson Still Has Lowest Case Numbers In District
Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County's active COVID numbers have hovered at the same pace for nearly two weeks, with virtually no change since Friday's report.
According to numbers released today from the Barren River District Health Department, Edmonson County's active COVID cases were at 68, with 537 total cases, 456 recoveries, and 13 deaths. Active cases have stayed near that mark for several days. Both Monday and Tuesday's active numbers were also at 68 cases, and in our last local COVID report on Friday, December 18th, had 70 active cases. The previous Friday, Dec 11th showed 69 active cases.
The health department has announced that there will be no numbers released on December 24th or 25th. The Governor's office also announced the same reporting schedule, so there will be no additional COVID report on the Edmonson Voice until next week.
Edmonson County's active cases in comparison to the entire county population is 68 active cases in 12,000 people, or .05% (one half percent of the county's population) with a current known positive COVID case. The county continues to have both the lowest total cases and active cases in the Barren River Health District.
