Dr. Lee Norman Kansas
New data released on Sunday, July 26, shows that new coronavirus cases are leveling off slightly in Kansas. Dr. Norman says it is important to note that the data is only from a 7-day rolling average. He says it will take some serious dedication to get the curve to flatten and drop. Dr. Norman suspects the slight flattening could be from people getting serious about schools opening. Which is something, he says has to continue.
