    9,349 tests, positives hold at about 22% explaining the highest number to date. Are we finally getting closer to where we need to be on testing or was this a one-day surge? That is the question.


  2. - JSI - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 2:42 pm:

    Largest one day rise?


  3. - Dee Lay - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 2:44 pm:

    Is there anyplace to download the raw data for the past few weeks?


  4. - Lester Holt’s Mustache - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 2:53 pm:

    == Largest one day rise?==

    Dr. Ezike said during either the Saturday or Sunday briefing that there were some weekend numbers that hadn’t come in yet and that we might see a jump early in the week. I assume today’s total includes those


  5. - Lynn S. - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 2:53 pm:

    Rich,

    Is there a place where we can see the daily graph since our first Covid-19 case in Illinois was reported? Governor mentioned the other day that he was on his 42nd daily briefing.

    Thanks for all your work.


  6. - Homeschool Prom King - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 2:56 pm:

    I believe this is the largest one-day rise in cases, but the good news is that it’s also our biggest daily number of test results by far: 9,349 tests, not too far off the Governor’s goal of 10,000.

    So the percentage of positive tests was about 22%, which is consistent with what we’ve been seeing for the past couple weeks.


  7. - Marquis - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 2:57 pm:

    So after a month of shelter in place dealing with a virus with a largely accepted 5 day incubation period, we are moving in the opposite direction. This isn’t a comment to assign blame, just express frustration. NY flattened their curve, what are they doing that we aren’t?


  8. - Donnie Elgin - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 3:07 pm:

    IDPH needs to provide Metrics by Day including cases, deaths, and tested. Indiana has a nice mobile friendly option

    https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2393.htm


  9. - jimbo26 - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 3:13 pm:

    We need to have info on all Covid-19 deaths. North Carolina death certificates show a higher rate than the state numbers. https://carolinapublicpress.org/30331/nc-death-records-many-dying-with-symptoms-like-covid-19/?fbclid=IwAR1nzmCPIC-vMnvKvRyTx0Lu9rG8HfnIbeM8S7Mi94D9CULBJwi29RPjcdU


  10. - Pot calling kettle - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 3:25 pm:

    ==Largest one day rise? ==

    As Prom King notes, the rise in cases is simply in line with the increase in testing. The % daily positives has been between 20 and 25% since April 6 (and in that general rage since late March).

    The indicators to hope for are an increase in daily tests that also has the daily % positive drop below 20% (and then trend down).


  11. - AP - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 3:49 pm:

    Where can we find the number of tests done in a day? I know the governor announced todays’ test numbers in the press conference, but is there a source reporting that?


  12. - Levois J - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:02 pm:

    Watching these daily numbers causes me to really want to study data and statistics. I’m seeing in the comments there that there was a press conference where numbers for previous days have been reported. Yet numbers from previous days are adding to a later date?


  13. - MyTwoCents - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:02 pm:

    All IDPH data on COVID is here:
    https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/covid19-statistics

    It takes some exploring to find everything, but there’s a lot of good data, including historical data.


  14. - Donnie Elgin - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:14 pm:

    “It takes some exploring to find everything, but there’s a lot of good data, including historical data”

    IDPH does have good data - but where is the daily (non-cumulative) data on cases, deaths, tested?

    Thes numbers are mentioned each day in the breifing but they are not on the website.


  15. - Banish Misfortune - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:41 pm:

    Two good sites for comprehensive Covid Tracking:
    https://covidtracking.com/
    https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/


  16. - Pelonski - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:50 pm:

    Here is a chart of new Illinois cases along with the 14 day moving average: https://imgur.com/4YkOk2K

    Unfortunately, cases newly reported case are still rising, but the good news is that the rise appears to be slowing.


  17. - Burgee - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:58 pm:

    Can someone clarify what others are saying. Several have indicated that since we are conducting more testing, there is an expected increase in deaths. Does that mean there have been deaths occurring in the past 42 days that weren’t tied to COVID-19 that maybe would have been had we been testing all individuals who later died? It wouldn’t seem at face value that more tests mean in increase in deaths, but if it is the latter explained above, then our numbers are underrepresented.


  18. - Candy Dogood - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 4:59 pm:

    ===what are they doing that we aren’t? ===

    More testing. More social pressure to stay home. There’s also a more serious and visibly apparent reason to stay home with the thousands of New Yorkers dying.


  19. - DuPage Dave - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 5:03 pm:

    This is so sad. Reminds me of the Vietnam era “body count” they would have every day on the evening news.


  20. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 5:13 pm:

    === Reminds me of the Vietnam era “body count”===

    Agreed. And, nationally, we surpassed the final war dead number today.

    47,430 vs. 47,424

  21. - revvedup - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 7:29 pm:

    At the current overall rate of increase, looks like Illinois could hit 2,500 new cases a day by May 5-6. This assumes an overall continued increase in test results. Not looking too good for a Statewide lift of the shutdown/stay home orders before May 15th.


  22. - Mama - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 9:00 pm:

    How many people have been tested today and to date(positive plus not - positive cases)?


  23. - Cool Papa Bell - Wednesday, Apr 22, 20 @ 9:26 pm:

    Shouldn’t the criteria to open the state consider the percent of cases that test positive each day and not the number of new cases each day.

    Maybe they are but they often talk about the number of cases and if we test more each day we will really only find more cases but the rate of infection might not really be any higher.
