Monday, Feb 1, 2021

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 2,312 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 16 additional deaths.

    Christian County: 1 male 70s
    Cook County: 1 male 40s, 2 males 50s, 2 males 60s, 1 female 70s, 1 male 70s, 1 female 80s, 2 males 80s, 3 males 90s
    Grundy County: 1 female 70s
    Putnam County: 1 male 60s

Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 1,128,613 cases, including 19,259 deaths, in 102 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 61,263 specimens for a total 16,100,555. As of last night, 2,387 individuals in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 515 patients were in the ICU and 278 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.

The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from January 25–31, 2021 is 3.9%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from January 25–31, 2021 is 4.9%.

A total of 1,333,475 doses of vaccine have been delivered to providers in Illinois, including Chicago. In addition, approximately 496,100 doses total have been allocated to the federal government’s Pharmacy Partnership Program for long-term care facilities. This brings the total Illinois doses to 1,829,575. A total of 996,410 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight, including 156,872 for long-term care facilities. We anticipate more than one million doses of COVID-19 vaccine being administered by the end of today. The 7-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 43,378 doses. Illinois set a new record for the number of doses administered on a Saturday at 36,851. However, yesterday’s winter weather impacted the number of vaccines administered, which totaled 14,422 doses.

If all the mitigation metrics continue to improve, Region 10 will move into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan on Tuesday, February 2, 2021.

    Mask up, wash your hands, socially distance….it is working. get the first vaccine you can, whatever the kind. they all do great at the most important thing…keeping you out of the ICU with the most dangerous symptoms. even the one dose…when it gets here…does that, and they tested it in South Africa. happy that therapeutics are becoming more widely thought of to help those who get really sick and prevent death.

    The numbers “feel” good today. But one day isn’t a trend. But this month should start to show the impact of vaccines being out. There is a small group of people who have had two shots now. A group of LTC residents would also have had two shots by now.

    I can’t wait to see this daily report on March 1st.

    This has been a wonderful trend. All the numbers are better, even slowly the death numbers. I’m sure the vax is helping and will continue to do so. But with the variants taking over, we may have one final nasty surge to contend with in March and April.

    I read the new Brazilian variant is infecting and killing people in Brazil that had already recovered from regular Covid19. One of the vaccine makers says they are working on a booster shot for the Brazilian variant but it will take time.

    It’s Monday, I dont get too excited about Monday numbers, unless I know which counties those numbers are coming from.

    The slow pace of vaccination is concerning. Fully vaccinating the 4 million Illinoisans most at risk requires 8 million injections. Our best day sofar was 60K injections.

    At this pace, it will take four more months.


  6. - Former State Worker - Monday, Feb 1, 21 @ 1:50 pm:

    Great job Illinois! Keep it up.

    Can’t wait to get the vaccine! My parents have already gotten their first dose and my sister has had two doses.

    “At this pace, it will take four more months.”

    Do you consider four more months slow? I’d be delighted if everyone that wants to get it is vaccinated by June. That would be the fastest vaccine rollout in history. The biggest problem we’ve had has been in the Federal LTC program. But even that seems to be improving. I feel pretty darned optimistic that I’ll be vaccinated by May.
