* Gov. Pritzker today…
On April 5, we had 3680 COVID patients in the hospital. On April 12, 4091. On April, 19 4599. On April 26, 4672. As of midnight last night. May 3, that number had reduced to 4493. […]
On April 5 COVID patients occupied 43% of our 2709 ICU beds. On April 12, they occupied 39% of 2991 ICU beds. On April 19, 40% of 3134 ICU beds. On April 26, 34% of 3631 ICU beds. And as of midnight last night, 33% of our 3681 ICU beds, which when combined with the ICU beds occupied by non COVID identified patients leaves about 933 ICU beds available statewide. […]
In the Rockford region, 51.5% of ICU beds were available as of midnight, and that’s about 86 beds. In the Peoria region, 40.2% of ICU beds were available and that’s about 101 actual beds. In the Springfield region, 54.3%, or 82 actual beds. In the Edwardsville region, 27.5% or 25 actual beds. In the Marion region, 27.5%, or 41 actual beds. In the Champaign region, 44.9%, or 62, actual beds. And in Cook and the collar counties and the city of Chicago, 16.9% of ICU beds were available as of midnight, that’s 186 actual beds. In the southwest suburbs, 17.9% or 94 actual beds. In the West suburbs, 15.9%, or 77 beds. […]
We continue to keep our eye trained on the number of Illinoisans with COVID-19 who are on ventilators, and from a statewide standpoint, we’ve continued to see a slight downward trend on this metric, from 29% usage on April 6, then 25% on April 14 then 23% on April 26. And of the 4493 Illinoisans in the hospital, 763 are on ventilators, that means 22% of our total ventilator inventory is currently in use by COVID-19 patients. That’s a lot lower than we had expected at this point. And it’s because of the amazing work that people have done, staying at home and following our executive orders.
