Kentucky reported 39 new coronavirus cases yesterday-and Governor Andy Beshear says one of them makes him angry.The governor says at least one person became infected after attending a "coronavirus party"with a group of people in their 20s.
Beshear says the group, who "apparently thought they were invincible," deliberately defied state guidance on social distancing despite repeated warnings from health officials. The virus also appears to be affecting younger people in the US more than it did in China, with 20% of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the US between 20 and 44, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Beshear said, "We are battling for the health and the lives of our parents and our grandparents. Don't be callous as to intentionally go to something and expose yourself to something that will hurt other people. We ought to be much better than that."
