* Press release…

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 2,049 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 28 additional deaths.

    - Cook County: 1 female 50s, 2 female 60s, 2 males 60s, 4 females 70s, 1 male 70s, 4 males 80s, 1 female 90s, 2 males 90s
    - DuPage County: 1 male 60s, 1 male 70s
    - Kane County: 1 male 70s
    - Knox County: 1 male 80s
    - Lake County: 1 male 80s
    - Mason County: 1 male 30s, 1 female 60s
    - Peoria County: 1 male 60s, 2 females 70s, 1 male 90s

Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 1,341,777 cases, including 22,047 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 49,473 specimens for a total of 22,872,035. As of last night, 1,963 individuals in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 479 patients were in the ICU and 249 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.

The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from April 26-May 2, 2021 is 3.4%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from April 26-May 2, 2021 is 4.0%.

The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses for Illinois is 11,802,395. A total of 9,410,057 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 78,440 doses. Yesterday, 16,920 doses were reported administered in Illinois. Data from this weekend from several pharmacies (Walgreens, Albertsons, CVS) is not yet available so the doses administered yesterday are likely to be low. The missing doses from this weekend will be reflected in numbers in the next couple days.

*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. For health questions about COVID-19, call the hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or email dph.sick@illinois.gov.

    ==Yesterday, 16,920 doses were reported administered in Illinois.==

    Looking at IDPH’s website, that appears to be a new low level for daily vaccinations we haven’t seen since February 20th.

    Provisional data - and it was a beautiful weekend, 80 degrees and breezy. No excuse to not get Vacinated, but a nice spring weekend is rare.

    Hard to evaluate the vaccine numbers until we see the missing pharmacy data. But it’s quite possible that the plateau is here.

    The early adopters are in.

    Next it will be early takers on 12-16 for the shot. After that it will have to be door to door to get people to take the shot. I think you might get a wave of people looking again this fall into winter for a first dose. But I think the take rate will fall somewhere close to 60-65% - and then COVID will become endemic in places and the rest of us will just choose not to go there.

    Indeed they are provisional numbers, and the pharmacy numbers will increase this, but still, that’s a lot of ground to make up.

    *and the rest of us will just choose not to go there.*

    If you are vaxxed, why does it matter?

    ===If you are vaxxed, why does it matter?===

    Kids can’t yet be vaccinated, for one. Not wanting to hang out with morons, for two.


  8. - Variants - Monday, May 3, 21 @ 2:30 pm:

    Longer unvaxxed and younger folks keep spreading this around sooner or later it will mutate and no one will be spared.
    What is so hard to understand.


  9. - Pundent - Monday, May 3, 21 @ 2:30 pm:

    =If you are vaxxed, why does it matter?=

    Among the many reasons for vaccinations and herd immunity is to stop the virus from mutating. A mutating virus will lessen the effectiveness of any vaccine.

    I’m tired of those that are both unwilling to trust the science and understand it.


  10. - AC - Monday, May 3, 21 @ 2:43 pm:

    ==If you are vaxxed, why does it matter?==

    I’d like to have ICU capacity available, and not have it run out like happened recently in Bloomington. If I had a procedure scheduled, I’d rather not have to have it rescheduled as happened recently in Peoria.

    Breakthrough infections are more common among people with compromised immune systems, and I think people going through cancer treatments have enough to deal with as it is.

    I get enough schadenfreude watching people vote against their own economic self interest, I don’t need to watch them suffer through a hospitalization too.
