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. 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.

    For the past few weeks when I have read these posts I have a refrain that comes to mind.

    And all for no reason
    Just one piece of lead
    I hung my head
    I hung my head

    I suppose it doesn’t matter whether it’s Sting or Johnny Cash singing it. The increase of cases is our collective failure and our collective tragedy and all for no reason.

    I was at the doctor today, and the number of nose-not-covered mask wearers was truly disheartening.


  3. - illinifan - Monday, Aug 3, 20 @ 1:24 pm:

    Where better than a doctors office to provide education on proper mask wearing. I fault the office for not enforcing. My doctors office have staff who police this and gently correct people.

    ===My doctors office have staff who police this and gently correct people. ===

    The physician or physician’s assistant that would actually interact with the patient usually never sees the waiting room. In a practice that is operated by one of our super consolidated mega corporation, the folks at the front are people making salaries that are between $10 to $20 an hour, and typically employees of the large corporations that the physicians themselves may have no control over.

    It’s not so much a fault of an office, but more so the general soulless corporation that is focused on getting patient visits to a certain point and is unwilling to make a firm stand on something like masks in the office in order to protect their employees and other patients for the risk of losing patients, or unwilling to enable their staff to successfully enforce those practices, or stick those duties onto someone that isn’t equipped to handle any issues, especially if a person has a violent or angry response.

    A doctor’s office has the same problem a restaurant does, or a factory. Local public officials have shrugged off their responsibility for public health and there isn’t anyone actually enforcing these procedures on a local level.

    4% how much longer before the next shut down? Bars, restaurants, schools, churches, places of recreation etc. Going to be a really long fall season.

    It only works if you wear it … so wear it to work it. Sounds like the end of a meeting.


  7. - Chatham Resident - Monday, Aug 3, 20 @ 2:57 pm:

    Where is a day-by-day graph of the daily statewide positivity rates? (Not by individual regions). From March until today. I’ve tried finding it on IDPH’s COVID-19 page but have had no luck there.


  8. - brickle - Monday, Aug 3, 20 @ 3:07 pm:

    Check out divoc-91

    https://91-divoc.com/pages/covid-visualization/

    The second chart allows you to isolate by state for a variety of data. It’s based out of UIUC, so they have a very detailed Illinois-specific page as well:

  9. - brickle - Monday, Aug 3, 20 @ 3:08 pm:

    should note that their Illinois regions are still the old regions and not the more recent breakdown, but still good info and visualization


  10. - illinifan - Monday, Aug 3, 20 @ 3:52 pm:

    Candy Dogood, as my doctors office check us in before we sit in the lobby the person takes your temperature. If someone is not masked they hand them one, and if not worn correctly they mention it needs to be up over the nose. Gently done, but when I asked the girl if she had run into problems with this she said everyone complies once reminded and over time people know it is required. Maybe it is the region I live in or because it is a medical facility people.


  11. - Smalls - Monday, Aug 3, 20 @ 4:03 pm:

    Chatham, this site has the positivity rate for the state as a whole, and also includes several other pieces of data including the R-naught figure. Interestingly, they estimate that Illinois is only doing contact tracing at 21%.

    Rich - I love this data every day. One item, do they provide you the percentage of beds being used in ICU for COVID?
