461 new cases, 8 new deaths - 12 Stateville prisoners hospitalized

Monday, Mar 30, 2020

* Press release…

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 461 new cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois. Seven new deaths are also being reported, including the death of an incarcerated man from Stateville Correctional Center.

    Cook County: male 50s, male 60s, female 60s, female 70s
    DuPage County: male 60s
    Kendal County: female 60s
    Will County: male 50s, male 60s

Additionally, 12 men who were incarcerated at Stateville are now hospitalized, including several requiring ventilators. There are 77 more incarcerated individuals with symptoms who are isolated at the facility. Eleven staff are also being isolated.

The Illinois Department of Corrections is taking a number of steps to control the spread of COVID-19 in its correctional centers. Staff who work with individuals in isolation and quarantine, as well as in the health center, are wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) and all staff are wearing some PPE. Staff are also having their temperature checked daily as they enter the facility.

Correctional centers with a confirmed case are placed on lockdown, which means there is no movement around the facility except for medical care. Incarcerated individuals who show symptoms are being tested.

Clark, Crawford, Marion, Randolph, and Saline counties are now reporting cases. Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 5,057 cases, including 73 deaths, in 52 counties in Illinois. The age of cases ranges from younger than one to 99 years.

It appears a death may have been reported at the last moment. Director Ezike just said the total is 8.

    They say “seven new deaths” but list eight peoples’ ages. Counting lessons?


  2. - Frank Manzo IV - Monday, Mar 30, 20 @ 2:50 pm:

    So is it 7 deaths or 8 deaths? Also, why do they keep misspelling Kendall County?


  3. - Frank Manzo IV - Monday, Mar 30, 20 @ 2:51 pm:

    They report 73 deaths in the press release, which is 8 more than yesterday, so I am going to assume it was either a typo or a late add for IDPH. 8 new deaths today.


  4. - Anyone Remember - Monday, Mar 30, 20 @ 3:00 pm:

    52 counties. More than 50% of Illinois’ counties.

    == Also, why do they keep misspelling Kendall County? == It’s part of a master plan by Tom Cross to drive OW insane.

    Still won’t return my calls.

    To the post, and much more serious,

    Looking at over half of Illinois counties with cases, we need to keep clear that the regional aspects of trying to think that certain places are safer or more susceptible, we all need to be vigilant towards recognizing a statewide crisis exists, and we all need to heed, for all our health

    Not golfing, for a change.

    Let’s play, “What do all these things have in common?”

    The counties reporting their first Covid-19 cases today are all below I-70.

    And if you believe the counties around them haven’t had any cases, I’d like to sell you a nice swamp in Arizona.

    I’m willing to bet every county in this state has had at least one Covid-19 case. The people who had it didn’t get sick enough to go see their doctor.


  9. - WLDS - Monday, Mar 30, 20 @ 6:28 pm:

    The 8th death was from Morgan County at about Noon today at Passavant. 84-year old male was first reported case in the county on Tuesday, March 24th.


  10. - RNUG - Monday, Mar 30, 20 @ 8:53 pm:

    Friend is one of the new cases in Sangamon County.


  11. - Lynn S. - Monday, Mar 30, 20 @ 10:34 pm:

    RNUG, sorry to hear that. Hoping your friend does well and gets back home soon.

    ==Friend is one of the new cases in Sangamon County.

    My prayers are with your friend.
