KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There are now 25 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Kansas City, Missouri, according to new information released by health officials.

The KCMO Health Department provided the update on its Twitter account, including a breakdown by gender, age and county.

According to the updated information, 16 of the cases are women and nine are men.

There are six people in their 20s and six more in their 30s with a confirmed COVID-19 infection, the highest among any age group.

Five people in their 60s, three people in their 40s, three people in their 50s, a 75-year-old and a 90-year-old also have confirmed COVID-19 infections.

Overall, 16 of the KCMO cases are in Jackson County, while eight are in Clay County and one is in Platte County.

It is unclear if the one in Platte County is the same as the first case announced by the Platte County Health Department earlier Monday.

It’s also unclear if the first three positive COVID-19 patients announced Monday by the Clay County Public Health Center are included in KCMO’s new figures or if these cases are in addition to those recently announced.
