Frankfort, Ky. (AP) — Governor Andy Beshear led a memorial service in memory of the more than 10,000 Kentuckians who died from COVID-19.
Health professionals talked about the daily struggle to fight the pandemic and their personal moments with patients. The nearly hour-long service was Sunday at the State Capitol in Frankfort.
Beshear noted that Kentucky’s death toll from the pandemic has surpassed the population of many cities in the state of Bluegrass. Kentucky recently passed the grim milestone of 10,000 coronavirus-related deaths.
Beshear also announced that Kentucky native Amanda Matthews has been commissioned to create a COVID-19 Memorial that will be placed on the grounds of the state house.
