LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – For a change, Fayette County had a good Friday in terms of new coronavirus cases.
Instead of the pattern of Fridays being one of the highest new case days each week, it was one of the lowest on Oct. 2 with 57 new cases, one of the lowest totals for any day since July 11, according to the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department’s Saturday morning report.
It marked six straight days below 100 and 13 out of 14 days.
The new cases pushed the county’s overall total to 8,730.
The number of new cases among college students reported to the health department also continued to be low.
The county had two new deaths Friday, raising the total to 79 lives lost to coronavirus-related causes.
The department now is including all cases involving college students in one number. That includes all students who live in Fayette County and attend a college or university in Fayette County, whether the University of Kentucky, Transylvania or some other college.
Saturday’s report put that total at 2,305, an increase of 14 from the previous report.
Of the 2,305 cases, 10 new cases were at UK, bringing the total to 2,084; 77 have been at Commonwealth Baptist College; 80, an increase of three, are at Bluegrass Community and Technical College, 62 are at Transylvania; and two, an increase of one, have been at Sullivan University.
Another 62 people have recovered, lifting that total to 7,638.
