Coronavirus in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — For the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began, Kansas is reporting the death of a child from COVID-19. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) says the 6 year old passed away in November, but the death certificate was not finalized until this week.

Due to privacy laws, the KDHE will not release any more details about the child.

The news comes as the state marks another grim milestone, topping 4,000 deaths. The KDHE says the state’s death toll is now 4,101 after another 206 deaths were linked to COVID-19.

In the past two days, another 2,647 Kansans tested positive for the coronavirus. Since the pandemic began, 281,562 Kansans have tested positive for it.

The KDHE also reports 102 more Kansans have been hospitalized with COVID-19 since Wednesday. The KDHE does not track recoveries.

Since the pandemic began, 915,491 Kansans have tested negative for the coronavirus, an increase of 7,557 since Wednesday.

The KDHE says 19,818 more Kansans have been vaccinated in the past two days. The total is now 218,168, 7.5% of the state’s population.

The KDHE releases its updates each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
