HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Reno County Data Analyst DJ Gering provided some statistics to Hutch Post on how the pandemic progressed through 2021.

Deaths are relatively steady through this fall, as compared to last fall.

Hospitalizations are even with January and September of 2021 with 10 days left in December.


There's an upward trend of emergency visits regarding COVID this month, relative to October and November.

Gering said Tuesday that if trends continue, there would be a total of approximately 2,215 ED visits for all causes by the end of December, which would be more than any other month since August of 2020.

All of the above statistics are for Reno County residents, no matter if they go to the hospital in Reno County or another county.
