All COVID-19 cases have run their course and all remaining residents that had tested positive have now been reported as recovered cases, according to Genesis Health, Edmonson Center in a statement today.
"At Edmonson Center, our last COVID positive resident has moved into the recovery stage and we just received clearance to resume admissions to the building via an admissions quarantine unit," the facility said to the Edmonson Voice. "In total, we have had 22 residents recover."
All 11 deaths reported in Edmonson County from the virus have been reported from Edmonson Center.
Over the past week, Edmonson County's total cases rose by 7 while reported recoveries rose by 3. As we have previously reported, the total number of cases currently on record for Edmonson County, (77) as reported by the Barren River Health District, do not represent the current number of positive cases. Instead, they represent the total number of cases from the first diagnosed case, or cases ever. Subtracting deaths and recoveries from the total number of cases gives a more accurate view of current known cases, which for Edmonson County today would be 26 current confirmed cases not reported to be deaths or recoveries.
Across the Barren River District this week, total confirmed positive cases rose from 1,879 to 2,015, an increase by 136; however, recoveries went from 1,251 to 1,394, for a 143 case increase. Reported virus deaths rose from 47 to 51 over the past week.
This week statewide, total positive COVID-19 cases rose by 807 to a total of 13,454. Reported deaths from the virus rose by 17 to 522 total, according to the Governor's Office.
