    Mar. 16, 2021 at 3:40 PM EDT|Updated: 2 hours agoFRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Governor Andy Beshear has provided an update on COVID-19 cases.

    The governor says a COVID-19 outbreak has been reported at a nursing home in eastern Kentucky. There are 41 cases reported, including five residents that have been hospitalized. Dr. Steven Stack says 30% of vaccinated individuals are symptomatic and 83% of the unvaccinated at the nursing home are showing symptoms. He says the vaccination has reduced symptomatic disease. One of the five residents in the hospital has been vaccinated.

    They say it appears to be a different variant from the United Kingdom, Brazil, or South African strain. Dr. Stack says it is the same cluster that they are doing some research on. The name of the facility in eastern Kentucky where this new variant has been detected is not available at this time. The governor says they’re working to identify the facility and better hold of the situation.....
