By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - Governor Andy Beshear announced Kentucky's fourth-highest report of new COVID-19 cases and third-highest report of new deaths on Wednesday.

"We're going to pass 3,000 COVID-19 deaths in the commonwealth," said Gov. Beshear. "That is tragic. We can stop this. We need to wear masks. We need to follow the rules and restrictions, and now is not the time to pull away the authority that keeps us safe. That allows us to be fluid and flexible with a virus that appears to be mutating and spreading more aggressively."

Beshear confirmed 4,560 new cases and 47 deaths.

The deaths include a 70-year-old man from McCracken County, a 77-year-old man from Livingston County, and a 63-year-old woman from Caldwell County.

Kentucky's positivity rate currently stands at 12.29 percent.
