Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) —State health officials say Kansas has reached a tough milestone in the coronavirus pandemic. Since Friday, the state says an additional 43 Kansas deaths are associated with COVID-19. That brings the state’s death toll to 6,024.
With more than 6,000 deaths, Governor Laura Kelly is calling for the flag to be half-masted until sunset on Wednesday, September 29th.
“It’s very sad to order a half-mast to honor the lives and memories of another 1,000 Kansans who died in COVID-19, the sixth time since the pandemic began,” she said in a news release. ..
Kelly requires all Kansas to be vaccinated, wear masks, and follow best health habits.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment will soon announce numbers for other coronaviruses and vaccines. We will update this story as information becomes available.
