7-7 daily update

(RILEY COUNTY, KS – July 7, 2020) Riley County has 8 new positive cases and 18 more recovered cases since yesterday’s report. There are now 145 (-10) active, 169 (+18) recovered, and 3 deaths.

Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan still has one positive patient who is on a ventilator and no (0) PUI patients currently hospitalized.

“We currently have more recovered cases than active cases, which is a good sign,” said Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Andrew Adams. “The increase in recovered cases reflects the new positives identified 10-14 days ago. The majority of the recoveries have been in the 18-24 age range, which means that, while we’re seeing an increase in cases in that age range, overall, illness has been less severe.”

Riley County Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs will issue Local Health Order No. 14 later today. Details of the order will be shared with the media and posted on the website.
