Kentucky has another 2,567 new installments of coronavirus, Gov. Andy Beshear reported late Sunday afternoon. Which brings the state's final amount of cases since mid-March to 200,632.

It's a somber milestone to hit nine months to the day since the first reported case within the state, the governor said inside a news release.

He also reported that 10 more Kentuckians have died from complications from COVID-19.

“These take time and effort numbers- Certainly, our hope is that we're slowing down this train and therefore are moving a minimum of to a different plateau,” Beshear said, adding the data does offer some hope in showing a slowing rate of growth. “We'll have to watch in the coming week if we do have that Thanksgiving surge or if the majority of our families kept it small this season.”

According to the release, 1,673 individuals are currently hospitalized because of the virus, with 401 within the intensive care unit and 214 people on ventilators.

Beshear asked for continued patience and diligence using the possibility of COVID-19 vaccines “just nearby.”

“The imminent distribution of COVID-19 vaccine within the upcoming weeks should help put this pandemic previously, but the coming weeks remain critical and come with sacrifices,” the state's public health commissioner Steven Stack said. “We must make good decisions every day and protect fellow Kentuckians by wearing masks, practicing social distancing, and staying home as sick. Doing this will save lives.”
