Summary

And Wednesday, the state recorded a single-day record of 67 fatalities, according to the newest numbers.“The numbers are getting worse,” Dr. Lee Norman, the top administrator at the state’s Department of Health, said Wednesday at a press conference in the Statehouse.Kansas is one of several states in the nation's midsection that have seen a dramatic increase in new coronavirus cases of late, one that public health experts blame on a combination of cooling weather and a growing reluctance to adhere to restrictions meant to stop the spread of the virus.Michigan, Missouri, North Dakota and Ohio all reported record numbers of new cases Thursday."Whether we're in a second wave, or the second crest of the first, our current situation is critical, especially outside of the well-resourced metro areas," Dave Dillon, spokesman for the Missouri Hospital Association, told the St Louis Post-Dispatch.But compared to California and Texas, the states with the most cases, Kansas’ numbers are small.The 69,155 confirmed cases Kansas has recorded since the start of the pandemic is not much more than the 59,603 cases recorded in the United States on Wednesday.
