HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Reno County Health Department Director Nick Baldetti announced some new data is available on the Reno County dashboard regarding the COVID-19 cases that have tested positive.

"We've added another tab at the Reno County COVID-19 dashboard, it's entitled symptoms," Baldetti said. "It lists out the symptoms that have been present with those that have tested positive for Reno County. You can go out there and kind of see what the symptom spread is for those that have been infected and then the average number of days that they are symptomatic and the underlying conditions that have been associated with those positives."

As of Tuesday, the 41 people diagnosed with COVID-19 have had an average of 13 days with symptoms. Twelve have had specific underlying conditions, three with cardiovascular disease, one with chronic lung disease, two with diabetes, one immunosuppressed and five with a history of smoking.

Twenty-nine of the 41 had a fever, 28 a cough, 20 myalgia, 17 runny nose, 15 shortness of breath, 13 sore throat, eight with chills, seven with nausea or vomiting, four with headache, two with diarrhea and four with other symptoms not listed.

As of Tuesday morning, all 41 cases diagnosed have recovered.
