Kansas Department of Health & Environment says state has 368 coronavirus cases

Coronavirus in Kansas

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Department of Health & Environment said there are 368 coronavirus cases in Kansas. It is up from 319 cases on Sunday.  There have been eight deaths. One was announced Monday in Sedgwick County. Most of the others were in the Kansas City area. 

“We have had the death of female patient in her 40s, her early 40s, who had underlying significant medical problems that put her at additional risk of that and an additional 70-year-old patient who died in Crawford County,” said Dr. Lee Norman, KDHE Secretary at a Monday press conference.

During the conference, Dr. Norman said Kansas now has about a two week supply of test kits and that new equipment arrived to test more kits over the weekend. He added that the state is looking at the new 45-minute rapid output test.

On Saturday, Gov. Laura Kelly decided to issue the stay-at-home order for all 2.9 million Kansas residents as the numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases and COVID-19-related deaths continue to grow.

President Donald Trump issued a major disaster declaration for the state. Trump’s order allows for federal assistance to supplement state, tribal and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a news release Monday from the White House.
