(KAIR)--Atchison County ended last week with 38 active, confirmed positive cases of COVID-19.

That’s according to a release from the Atchison County office of NEK Multi-County Health issued July 15.

Two days prior to that release, Atchison County had 23 active, confirmed positive cases, with the health department continuing to urge those county residents who are unvaccinated against the coronavirus to do so.

The increase of cases is also noted statewide, with Kansas seeing increasingly larger numbers of new COVID-19 cases and a surge in cases of the faster-spreading delta variant. According to statistics from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, 7 Atchison County cases are confirmed as involving the delta variant.

Doniphan and Jackson Counties have also recently reported an increase in coronarvirus cases, with KDHE showing that 26 cases in Doniphan County involve the delta variant, while 5 cases of the variant are confirmed in Jackson County.
