As of Friday, Beshear reported 228 people have recovered.

The governor asked if any companies in Kentucky can help manufacture ventilators, they should do so.

“If you are a Kentucky company and you think you can do any of this, give us a call,” Beshear said. “If we can create our own manufacturing base to create PPE we will be in a better place than just about any state.”

The governor also reminded everyone of new recommendations that people leaving their house should wear cloth masks.
