Eight dead; 49 recovered in coronavirus cluster at nursing home near Wichita

Eight people have died and 49 have recovered a month after a COVID-19 outbreak surfaced at a nursing home in the Wichita suburb of Clearwater, county officials announced Friday.

A total of 61 people were infected with the coronavirus in the cluster of cases at the Clearwater Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at 620 Wood.

“It’s just a tragic, tragic thing when it gets into a long-term care facility like this,” said Burt Ussery, mayor of Clearwater. “Everybody in town is aware of it and everybody in town is concerned about it.”

That single cluster is the largest concentration of coronavirus deaths in Sedgwick County, accounting for 44 percent of the county’s COVID-19 deaths since the pandemic came to the Wichita area in mid-March.

1. Our governor has been steadfast and smart...

... I had to pick up a prescription and a few food items today at the grocery store, though, and was appalled at the lack of masks. I was one only of three white people wearing one. All but one AA in the store we’re wearing theirs. Crazy white b.s. thinking it’s a hoax or that they can’t possibly get it.
