462 new cases, 26 additional deaths

Monday, Jun 22, 2020

* Press release…

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today announced 462 new confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 26 additional confirmed deaths.

    - Cook County – 1 male 40s, 1 female 50s, 4 males 50s, 1 female 60s, 2 males 60s, 2 females 70s, 1 male 70s, 3 females 80s, 2 males 80s, 2 females 90s, 2 males 90s
    - DuPage County – 1 female 100+
    - Kane County – 1 male 50s
    - Lee County – 1 female 60s
    - Madison County – 1 female 60s
    - St. Clair County – 1 male 60s

Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 137,224 cases, including 6,671 deaths, in 101 counties in Illinois. The age of cases ranges from younger than one to older than 100 years. Within the past 24 hours, laboratories have reported 18,219 specimens for a total of 1,379,003. The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from June 15–June 21 is 2%.

Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, IDPH is now reporting both confirmed and probable cases and deaths on its website. Reporting probable cases will help show the potential burden of COVID-19 illness and efficacy of population-based non-pharmaceutical interventions. See CDC definition of a probable case on its website. IDPH will update these data once a week.

*All data are provisional and will change. In order to rapidly report COVID-19 information to the public, data are being reported in real-time. Information is constantly being entered into an electronic system and the number of cases and deaths can change as additional information is gathered. Information for deaths previously reported has changed, therefore, today’s numbers have been adjusted. For health questions about COVID-19, call the hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or email dph.sick@illinois.gov.

    “Only” 250 people on ventilators. Still huge but so much better than it was.

    Do they publish our R0? We should be under 1 now, right?

    ===Still huge but so much better than it was.===

    To put the number in perspective, there are currently 1,208 non-COVID patients on ventilators according to IDPH, up from 227 in late April.

    I also emailed IDPH “covid team” to clarify if confirmed cases meant unique individuals, and they responded:

    “We have been informed that this is the total number of tests reporting a positive result. So if an individual is tested twice, both would be included in this number.”

    @GregN
    This site lists it for each state: https://rt.live/

    ===Do they publish our R0? We should be under 1 now, right?===

    For data validity issues because of the testing, tested populations, etc, I could see not wanting to put that number out because folks may use it to come to a conclusion about community spread has significant data validity issues and infer that things might be safer than they actually are.

    Scott: thank you!
    Candy: I see your points, but a month ago we were told how critical it was to get below 1. My thought is that the distancers and face coverers might enjoy the positive reinforcement of learning the good news. The Covidiots will disregard guidance anyway.
    Thx.

    Illinois’ Ro is apparently 0.78. Very good

    I’m sorry, but IDPH is still not listing all congregate care type residential facilities and not including the stats for IL jails, prisons, and juvie. The Covid outbreak statewide in prisons is significantly lagging time-wise compared to community cases. East Moline Correctional recently went from 1 inmate positive to 25 in just a couple of days and now has 29 inmates and 6 staff ill. That’s starting to look like the spread at Stateville, and Stateville is still fighting it’s outbreak. The State and IDPH need to include the Covid stats from all state facilities as well as residents in order to present any accurate picture of where it stands in relation to Covid overall.

    == We have been informed that this is the total number of tests reporting a positive result. So if an individual is tested twice, both would be included in this number.”==

    I believe that people who test positive have to
    be retested every so often until they have two negative tests.
    So this tells me that 1. We don’t have as many unique individuals with the the virus as we might think and 2. The percentage of deaths to unique individuals with the disease is higher than we think.


  10. - DownSouth - Tuesday, Jun 23, 20 @ 3:51 am:

    Thoughts Matter - I can assure that in my county those testing positive were not retested. They got one phone call informing them of their results, then a second call approximately 10-14 days later essentially releasing them from quarantine/isolation. I spoke with a number of positive cases roughly a month ago and ZERO contact tracing had been done with any of them. Not at notification, nor in the follow up phone call that simply inquired about any remaining symptoms. If they reported being symptom free for 72 hours they were released. I pray that with the now increased contract tracing that situation has changed.


  11. - morningriver - Tuesday, Jun 23, 20 @ 8:43 am:

    Family member recently tested negative and was then, days later, diagnosed positive in hospital, without another test. Is this number reported? Never occurred to me to ask.
