Kentucky 'coronavirus party' guest tests positive for COVID-19, governor says

Kentucky 'coronavirus party' guest tests positive for COVID-19, governor says”

That kind of behavior can not stand in Kentucky, where the number of confirmed cases has reached 163 with four dead, Beshear said Tuesday. "We are battling for the health and even the lives of our parents and our grandparents".

Beshear did not provide details on Tuesday of when and where the "coronavirus party" took place and how many people were present or what happened at the event. He said he didn't want to identify the person, who "made a mistake".

In New York state, more than half of coronavirus cases - 53% - have been among young people between the ages of 18 and 49, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday.

"I guess thinking they were invincible flaunting the mass gathering prohibition", Beshear judged.

"Don't be so callous as intentionally to go to something and expose yourself to something that can kill other people", he added.

Beshear also announced new restrictions on non-life sustaining businesses, the new restrictions will go into affect on Thursday by 8 pm. The order is due Wednesday and Beshear provided little specifics on what businesses it would affect.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, shown here at his election party, had harsh words for those holding "coronavirus parties".

And the virus seems to be affecting young people in the United States more than it has in China. No additional deaths were reported Tuesday. "We are following all guidelines from local officials and are taking extreme measures to ensure the safety of employees at our site".

There are now more than 52,000 cases of the virus in the United States.

The Martin County Health Department confirmed Monday afternoon that there is a positive COVID-19 case in the county.

"Out of an abundance of caution, and in addition to our enhanced daily deep cleaning, we are temporarily closing the Shepherdsville, Ky., site for additional sanitization", the company said.
