Wichita, Kansas 2021-06-16 15:56:43 –

Topeka, Kansas (KSNW) -The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said there have been three new deaths from the coronavirus in Kansas since Monday. In addition, KDHE said there were 329 new cases and 35 new hospitalizations.

More than 43.4% of Kansas are vaccinated once, of which 37.4% are vaccinated. The Kansas population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. It has increased by 0.3% since Monday.

One of the major concerns is the highly contagious and potentially more serious delta mutant of the coronavirus that originated in India. Health officials say vaccines are effective against it, but there is concern that it may lead to outbreaks in states with lower immunization rates. Rochelle Walensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a call from the governor on Monday that Delta variants increased from 2.7% in all cases in May to 9.7% this month. Washington Governor’s Office.

At the same time, the state has better understood how to convene focus groups to convince them who is refusing vaccination, why, and how vaccination is right. I will.

“This is a race between vaccines given to people and current or future variants,” said Dr. Lee Norman, director of health at Kansas.

Health experts cite two factors that are causing the surge there. It is a more rapidly spreading delta variant and resistance to vaccination among the population.

The United States is not expected to meet President Joe Biden’s goal of giving at least one dose to 70% of adults in the United States by July 4. This number is about 65%. Kansas is one of the states that does not expect to reach its goals.

Health officials see primary care physicians as the key to alleviating people’s concerns.

“People want to hear it from their doctors, their care providers, and the people they know and trust,” Norman said.
