Of those, 1,176 patients were in the ICU and 647 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.

The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from December 2 – December 8, 2020 is 9.6%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from December 2 – December 8, 2020 is 11.4%.

*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 a death 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.

…Adding… Keep wearing that mask, keep washing your hands and keep on keeping on with the distance thing and maybe the state will get out of this mess…

    It’s nice to be under 10k for like the 3rd or 4th day in a row

    We should have a better idea of the damage Thanksgiving did pretty soon, right?

    Hopefully Thanksgiving did not cause a lot of damage. Some Friends of mine still got together with family but they ate outside around fire pits. I was surprised at how many friends posted pictures of these type of get togethers on FB

    Ezike and others now say that the spike in cases might not be seen for a few more days. I think they are being overly cautious. She wants to start counting forward 14 days from the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I think that’s silly.

    People gathered on Thanksgiving. They may have traveled on Sunday but on a plane you have to have a mask on and transmission risk in a plane is way less than a dinner table with 10 people.

    I don’t think a spike is coming. I really think that the overwhelming number of people didn’t gather in big groups and most listened to reason.

    Our case rate still needs to nudge downward - but we are in a much better place now that many would have though possible four or five weeks ago.

    It’s possible that we actually are in a surge, but it’s being off-set. Maybe the drop would be even steeper but-for the extra Thanksgiving interactions.
