Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 1,194,702 cases, including 20,700 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 103,336 specimens for a total of 18,492,848. As of last night, 1,166 individuals in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 263 patients were in the ICU and 121 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.

The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from February 26–March 4, 2021 is 2.2%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from February 26–March 4, 2021 is 2.8%.

A total of doses of 3,780,305 vaccine have been delivered to providers in Illinois, including Chicago. In addition, approximately 443,700 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 4,224,005. A total of 3,125,425 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight, including 336,911 for long-term care facilities. The 7-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 83,115 doses. Yesterday, a record 131,882 doses were administered in Illinois.

*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.

I went back and looked at the seven-day average of administered doses on January 20th: 21,869.

    What’s going on in Region 8 (Kane/DuPage)? Region data is a few days in arrears but on Monday, Region 8 was about 25% of the state’s positive tests (309 of 1143) and on Tuesday, they were over 30% of the state’s positive tests (472 of 1577).

    Huge positivity rate jump from Monday to Tuesday in Region 8 (DuPage/Kane). From 3.8% to 4.5%. Also regions 1, 3, 7, and 9 saw at least small increases during that same time. Not good news for Mendoza and others who want to restart big conventions and outdoor events this summer.

    =What’s going on in Region 8 (Kane/DuPage)? =

    Perhaps the effects of March coming in like a lamb this year? Perhaps even people getting a head start on their “Halloween in October” (aka St. Patrick’s Day) celebrations? In other words, more bar and restaurant visits than usual up there?

    I’m in region 8 and was watching today closely after the past few days… not good :(


  5. - Chicago Cynic - Friday, Mar 5, 21 @ 12:49 pm:

    132,000 doses administered yesterday - woohoo [exclamation mark]. One step closer to normalcy.


  6. - Cool Papa Bell - Friday, Mar 5, 21 @ 12:56 pm:

    What heck is wrong in Winnebago County? 46,987 vaccines distributed.

    That number is shocking.


  7. - OneMan - Friday, Mar 5, 21 @ 1:56 pm:

    Singed someone up for the United Center vaccine location using the website they suggested.

    Got my first solicitation e-mail from the same site today.

    “Add your insurance info to your account and we’ll help you find doctors in your network.”

    Seems like the city or state or whoever was responsible for this could have found a way to do it so a private company doesn’t have your info.


  8. - Cool Papa Bell - Friday, Mar 5, 21 @ 2:06 pm:

    Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 1,194,702 cases…

    Currently, IDPH says 1,019,685 are fully vaccinated… (3,125,425 Administered Vaccine Doses)

    Roughly - confirmed infections over 365 days will be less than the number of fully vaccinated people over 90 days of having the vaccine.

    That’s an amazing stat. A huge win for public health and for the scientists who created the vaccine.


  9. - Smalls - Friday, Mar 5, 21 @ 3:11 pm:

    You won’t notice these if you look at just the region numbers, but also look at DeKalb and McHenry. DeKalb is at 11.4% and McHenry is at 11.0%. So that is 4 west/northwest suburban counties, including DuPage and Kane, that have risen dramatically in 3 days.
