Gov. Andy Beshear held his daily news conference to update Kentuckians on the COVID-19 situation and the state's response.

Kentucky's number of confirmed coronavirus cases reached 163 Tuesday as Beshear has ordered several measures to stop the spread, following what other other states have done so far.

That's up 35 from Tuesday, which is a smaller increase on the day.

In New York state, more than half of coronavirus cases - 53% - have been among young people between the ages of 18 and 49, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday.

The additional new Coronavirus cases wre in Daviess, Laurel, Grayson, Jefferson, Jessamine, Madison, McCreary, Wayne, Oldham, Kenton and Fayette counties.

Four people in the state have died from the disease.

"We are battling for the health and the lives of our parents and our grandparents", Beshear continued. "Even for those who are going to be excepted under this order, we are going to mandate that type of social distance that we have to see out there to protect our people". "Now is the time to do everything we can".

More than 3,000 people in Kentucky have been tested, Beshear said during the press conference.

Beshear admitted that hearing about the "coronavirus party" made him "mad", adding that "we all owe each other a duty to protect each other, and we simply can't have folks that are doing things like this..." Beshear said the person was a 75-year-old man.

"This is one that makes me mad", the governor said. However, Dr Mike Ryan said that countries should instead focus on "finding who is sick" and then "isolate them". He didn't give many details about the event but quickly denounced it.

While leaders around the world are urging people to practice social distancing, a group of young people in Kentucky, US got together to take part in "coronavirus party". "We ought to be much better than that", he went on to say.
