Kansas Has Reported Another Record Seven-Day Spike in Coronavirus Cases

November 10, 2020

TOPEKA, Kan. — Kansas has reported another record seven-day spike in coronavirus cases to push the state past 100,000 for the pandemic as officials wrestle with getting more residents to wear masks.

The state health department added 5,920 new confirmed and probable cases to the state’s tally since Friday, bringing the total to 103,553 since the pandemic began. The state averaged 2,047 new cases a day for the seven days ending Monday.

The state also reported 15 more COVID-19-related deaths to bring the pandemic total to 1,081.

Gov. Laura Kelly’s staff, legislative leaders and local officials launched discussions about encouraging mask use before last week’s elections, and officials say those discussions will continue. There is still resistance to mask mandates from many local officials and the legislature.
