TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Department of Health and Environment updated its coronavirus website Friday to show there have been 1,166 positive cases of COVID-19 in the state. There were 1,106 as of Thursday.

The number of deaths in Kansas went from 42 Thursday to now 50 deaths .

Hospitalizations from coronavirus are at 274.

The KDHE shows there have been 10,248 negative tests.

Late Friday, Sedgwick County reported 179 cases of COVID-19 up from 161 Thursday. The county reported that 32 had recovered, and there were two deaths.

On Friday afternoon at 2 p.m., Governor Laura Kelly held her daily briefing. She was joined by Jeff Zmuda, secretary of the Kansas Department of Corrections.

They both talked about the disturbance at Lansing Correctional Facility Thursday that involved dozens of inmates. The governor said it ended around 2 a.m. with only two inmates needing treatment. Those inmates are now isolated from the rest of the population.

The Lansing prison has drawn attention recently amid the coronavirus crisis, with the corrections department reporting 16 staff and 12 inmates with confirmed cases of COVID-19. Those inmates and staff, along with seven additional inmates who have symptoms, are being kept in another building.

Dr. Lee Norman, Secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said they are now aware of four clusters of coronavirus connected to religious gatherings. He said two of those clusters are in Sedgwick County and two are in Wyandotte County.

When asked if the stay-at-home order would be extended past April 19, the governor said they are discussing it now and will know by sometime early next week. Sedgwick County has an order limiting public gatherings until April 23.
