LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A late week jump in new coronavirus cases has health experts watching to see if Fayette County’s plateau may have been short lived.
The county confirmed 87 new cases Friday, pushing the county’s total since March to 9,811, according to the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department’s report Saturday.
The 87 cases Friday followed 133 Thursday. The two were among the highest back-to-back days since late September.

One new death was reported Friday, increasing the total number of people lost to coronavirus-related causes at 89.

The number of new cases among college students reported to the health department also continued to be low.
Saturday’s report put that total at 2,523, an increase of 14 from the previous report.
Of the 2,523 cases, 12 new cases were at UK, bringing the total to 2,284; 77 have been at Commonwealth Baptist College; 93, an increase of one, have been at Bluegrass Community and Technical College, 66, an increase of one, have been at Transylvania; and three have been at Sullivan University.
Another 63 people have recovered, lifting that total to 8,542.
