A 61-year-old Riley County man has tested positive for the coronavirus, increasing the county total to 67 cases.

The man was already in Ascension Via Christi Hospital when the test confirmed he had the virus, officials said. 

Three people are in the hospital; two have tested positive for the virus and one is under investigation for it.

Two people are on a ventilator; one is a previously confirmed case, and officials didn’t indicate whether the latest case is the other person.

Of the 67 cases, eight are active and 58 are recovered. 

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) reported 10,170 cases, 890 hospitalizations and 222 deaths statewide Wednesday.

That is up 159 cases, 28 hospitalizations and five deaths from Monday.

There have been 97,883 negative tests statewide.

Pottawatomie County has 29 cases and Geary County has 18, according to KDHE.

The Geary County Health Department announced Tuesday that a 65-year-old man died from coronavirus.

This is the second person in the region who has died from coronavirus-related causes.
