FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) - Gov. Andy Beshear gives the latest update on Kentucky’s fight against COVID-19.
Gov. Beshear said he believed the general public deserved to see the evidence and facts related to the Breonna Taylor case, and requested Attorney General Daniel Cameron to release the information.
“I am committed to building a more just and equitable commonwealth for our people, and in honor of Breonna Taylor and her family,” Gov. Beshear said. “My prayer is we can work together to achieve a better world, that I can continue to listen, hear and have the courage to do what’s necessary to create justice and move forward, and that all of us – all of us – can come together to move closer to the world Breonna calls us to create.”
The Governor reported 796 new cases of the virus Wednesday raising the total to 63,517.
Beshear reported five deaths raising the death toll to 1,124.
“We’ve already talked about one tragic loss today. And now we’re reporting five more people who we’ve lost to COVID-19,” said Gov. Beshear. “Let’s make sure we prevent more tragic losses. I want for us to build a better world.”
