Coronavirus in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — State health experts say 2,121 more Kansans have tested positive for the coronavirus since Monday morning, while 4,812 have tested negative. Of the newer cases, 37 are the COVID-19 delta variant.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) says 15 more Kansas deaths have been linked to COVID-19, bringing the state’s death toll to 6,185. In addition, in the past two days, 77 more Kansans have been hospitalized with the virus. Unfortunately, the KDHE does not track recoveries.

Each Wednesday, the KDHE gives an update on coronavirus clusters across Kansas. It says there are 203 active clusters in the state, five more than last week. Sixty of those clusters are in Kansas K-12 schools, an increase of four from last Wednesday.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment only names places that have five or more current cases.
