WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Kansas coronavirus numbers jumped over the holiday weekend. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) did not provide an update on Monday, so the numbers released Wednesday are for a five-day time period, from Friday morning to Wednesday morning.

During that time, the KDHE says 63 more Kansas deaths have been linked to COVID-19, bringing the state’s death toll to 5,693.

The state reports 142 more Kansans have been hospitalized with COVID-19. The state does not track recoveries.

Since Friday morning, 5,727 Kansans tested positive for the coronavirus, and 12,279 Kansans tested negative. Also, during that time, the KDHE says 178 Kansans tested positive for the COVID-19 delta variant. See the county-by-county data in the charts below.

Some of the COVID-19 vaccination totals have gone down from last week. We asked the KDHE for an explanation. A spokesperson responded in an email: “KDHE has updated the COVID-19 dashboard to only include data from WebIZ for Kansas Residents. This change has resulted in a decrease in the vaccine metrics being reported.”

With that in mind, here is how the vaccination data looks as of Wednesday morning:

  • 9,859 more Kansans got their 1st dose of vaccine
  • The number of Kansans who have a second dose is 498 fewer than Friday
  • 12,731 Kansas received a 3rd dose

The new policy also changes the percentage of Kansans who are vaccinated. The KDHE now reports that of Kansans who are eligible to get vaccinated, 52.34% have completed the vaccination series. That percentage is down 1.91% from Friday.
