Darren Doyle, story:
Seven more COVID-19 cases were confirmed today, Monday, April 27th, in Edmonson County according to the Barren River District Health Department in a press release. It's the largest jump reported in one day so far, but could also mean that some of those occurred over the weekend.
That brings Edmonson County's confirmed virus total to 20 cases. Out of those 15, four have been reported recovered. We reached out to Edmonson Center Healthcare for an update at their facility but did not immediately receive a response.
Other numbers for the area are as follow:
Governor Beshear reported 87 new cases today statewide for a total of 4,146 cases in KY. Of those cases, 1,521 have recovered and there were 5 new deaths reported today.
