Hospitals raise morgue capacity concerns
MISSION, Kan. (AP) – Nursing homes are facing COVID-19 outbreaks, schools are closing and hospitals in the Kansas City area are seeing so many deaths that they are raising alarms about morgue capacity.
The problems come as Kansas yet again shattered its record for new confirmed and probable cases.
The state reported an average of 7,887 new cases a day for the seven days ending Friday — nearly triple the previous biggest peak in November 2020.
