    how many test were from downstate. In Macon county as of 2 weeks ago only 160 tests total to date and we have a nursing home cluster of 5 deaths and 42 employees and residents tested positive 2 weeks ago. I would have thought the mere circle of contact would have had 500-1000 people test just from that one hotspot


  2. - Former Downstater - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 3:29 pm:

    Isn’t this the real question for those areas that say they can reopen? How many tests have been administered and when? A lack of positives because there are so few tests is not evidence of a lack of threat.


  3. - Downstate Illinois - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 4:16 pm:

    The governor has no authority over the legislative branch. They can meet in any form or fashion allowable under the constitution, state statute or their own rules. Of course the governor’s violating everyone else’s civil liberties so what’s another 177.

    === The governor has no authority over the legislative branch. They can meet in any form or fashion allowable under the constitution, state statute or their own rules.===

    Ask the Four Tops why they aren’t meeting.

    No one is stopping the legislature

    No one.

    IDPH has started posting the number of tests per county:
    https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/covid19-statistics

    What I’m curious about is for those 6 counties still not reporting cases, how many tests have been conducted in those counties since they’re not listed. Looking at the stats for today, it seems like there’s about a 12,000 test difference between the total count and the summing of the individual counties.

    Truthteller–The State provided either 2 or 3 days ago tests for all staff and all residents of the nursing home that you referred to. The Macon County Health Department has numbers of infected, deaths and other information on their website that is updated daily. Additionally, there is a local task force of key agencies that puts out a press release daily with updated information. I check their website daily and read the task force press releases daily. The local health department and the special task force that formed have done a very good job at communicating.

    1 case in their 50’s. No one else in working age. Other states are showing deaths linked to 95% having underlying issues. Why don’t we report that? These numbers prove we should be back to work. Nobody is dying of working age unless underlying issues.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:12 pm:

    - Fighter of Foo -

    “Acceptable deaths for money”

    Is that how it works?


  9. - Fighter of Foo - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:33 pm:

    Ow there are ZERO , so there is that? Very acceptable. I’ll take NONE. Any day to get people to work and not hopeless. Not my numbers, THE numbers. Next?


  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:36 pm:

    === Any day to get people to work and not hopeless. Not my numbers, THE numbers. Next?===

    Really?

    According to you…

    ===…showing deaths linked to 95% having underlying issues. Why don’t we report that? These numbers prove we should be back to work.===

    So, 5% is ok… It’s not Zero, that’s your conscience calling you on it for not using it.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:41 pm:

    === including 2,215 deaths,==

    There’s no doubt you do sleep like a baby.

    These families who lost loved ones know that too.


  12. - Levois J - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:48 pm:

    Now when was the last time a new county reported their first confirmed cases? How long has it been 96 counties?


  13. - Fighter of Foo - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:52 pm:

    Ow. My uncle is in the will county numbers. Because of this Over reaction, we haven’t had the chance to pay the respects he deserves.


  14. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 5:54 pm:

    - Fighter of Foo -

    My condolences.

    Your position now is more puzzling.


  15. - Fighter of Foo - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 6:12 pm:

    OW one last thing. You have been, and always will be my favorite person on here. Stay safe no matter our differences. I always learn from you.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 6:21 pm:

    - Fighter of Foo -

    You’re far too kind.

    Loss during this time, unparalleled time, I can’t imagine.

    My take with your thoughts and your tragedy, my hope is fewer families are faced with your tragedy too.

    I want things to move forward. The economics of this crisis, and that economic crisis we’re all facing, the way to begin to move forward is the science.

    Stay well, truly.

    OW

    Given that we have now been under social distancing ordinances for weeks, does anyone know how recent victims contracted the virus? Were they first responders? Did they violate social distancing guidelines? Is it possible to do contact tracing to determine the source of infection since in theory there has been much less social contact? Were these the people out on the lake front in late March?

    Contact tracing is being done, but it’s hard to really determine where someone was exposed. Keep in mind- we are still going to the grocery store, the pharmacy, the gas station, the drive thru, the big box home improvement store. We are dropping off groceries for our families and not using delivery because we can’t wait days for it to be delivered. The virus can live on surfaces for days. We don’t know who touched what before we did. You can be doing everything you’ve been told to do and still get it.

    The deaths come 3/4 weeks after you are exposed when your body is exhausted from fighting it.


  19. - ANON - Thursday, Apr 30, 20 @ 9:07 am:

    10 deaths under the age of 60 and 82 over the age of 60.
