FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear says the first Kentucky patient to test positive for the new coronavirus worked at the Walmart in Cynthiana.

Six cases of the virus have been diagnosed in Kentucky. Of those cases, three are in Harrison County, two are being treated in Fayette County and one is in Jefferson County.
