Kentucky Reports 20 Additional Coronavirus-Related deaths

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear has announced 20 more Kentucky deaths related to the coronavirus outbreak. He said Tuesday it’s the state’s largest single-day total since the global pandemic began. Beshear says the high death count was based in part on the timing of some reports. But he called it a “tough day.” It comes as the state gradually reopens its economy, which has been battered by the virus. The governor says he believes the state can reopen safely if it’s done gradually. But he says people need to remember that the virus is still deadly.
