Kansas pauses release of data about coronavirus clusters

September 17, 2020 - 1:12 pm

Kansas’ health department has suspended its reporting on individual businesses and other locations where clusters of coronavirus cases have occurred after only a week. 

The agency says it wants to make sure the data does not include cases that aren’t current.  Dr. Lee Norman acknowledged that the data the agency began releasing Sept. 9 about coronavirus clusters could leave the impression that some outbreaks currently are more severe than they are.
