FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear has reported 147 new coronavirus cases in Kentucky. The number was the largest single-day number since the outbreak started. Beshear also announced seven more virus-related deaths Tuesday. The spike in cases follows more modest numbers of cases the prior two days. Beshear says cases those days appeared to be “artificially low.” With the seven latest deaths, Kentucky’s death toll from the virus rose to 65.
