    How about IDPH tells the public how they determine “probable” cases.

    Responsa - The CDC, under President Trump, defined probable cases and requested State’s include them quite a while back….Last summer, I believe.

    Mar 23, 2021 · A probable case or death is defined by one of the following: Meeting clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19; Meeting presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence; Meeting vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID19; Not all jurisdictions report probable cases and deaths to …

    Reporting probable cases prior to having available results of testing makes sense in some instances. Counting suspected cases as “probable” in only “some” jurisdictions makes overall reporting less accurate than it should be and lessens confidence in the numbers that are driving public policy. We should at the very least least be told the percentages of confirmed versus probable when the daily new case numbers are published. Let’s not entirely ignore math.

    You failed to answer the question..all you did was make apolitical statement.

    I don’t think it is a political statement to say that:

    The CDC, under President Trump, defined probable cases and requested State’s include them quite a while back….Last summer, I believe.

    I mean, Trump was the president when that was determined, and whatever the original poster’s political affiliation may be that is a statement of fact.
    CSTE is Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists:

    The CSTE’s Interim Case Definition for COVID-19 defines a probable case of COVID-19 as one that meets one of three sets of requirements:

    Meet clinical criteria AND epidemiologic evidence with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19.

    Meet presumptive laboratory evidence AND either clinical criteria OR epidemiologic evidence.

    Meet vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for COVID-19.
