Kansas coronavirus cases hitting plateau, state’s lead doctor says


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The second spike in Kansas coronavirus cases is starting to wane, according to the state’s top doctor.

Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Lee Norman tweeted Sunday that new data shows a leveling-off in the state’s new case count. Norman said it’s still a little too soon to reopen schools, and that detail-oriented hygiene is key to flatten the curve further.
