The Illinois Department of Public Health announced 6,597 new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 and 13 additional deaths for Friday, Saturday and Sunday combined. IDPH does not update its data dashboard on weekends.
As of late Sunday, Illinois had 1,285 COVID-19 patients in the hospital. Of those, 142 were in intensive care units, and 47 were on ventilators.
For Friday-Sunday, the state administered 76,950 vaccines. With a new bivalent booster widely available, Illinois is now averaging 16,165 COVID-19 vaccinations a day, the highest average since May.
From the IDPH’s data dashboard:
Case rate per 100,000: 20.9 (down 1.4 from Friday)
Percentage of ICU beds available: 23%
COVID-19-diagnosed hospital admissions (seven-day rolling average): 116 (Same as Friday)
Weekly deaths reported: 64
Illinois has seen 3,722,915 total cases of the virus, and 34,824 people have died.
County-by-county update: As of mid-April, the IDPH will provide a county-by-county update focusing on the case rate per 100,000 people, the percentage of ICU beds available, a rolling seven-day average of COVID-19-diagnosed hospital admissions and weekly deaths.
The definition of a COVID-19-diagnosed hospital admission is as follows: the seven-day average of daily number of hospital admissions given a diagnosis of COVID-19 as measured using the Illinois Syndromic Surveillance System.
Illinois collects all emergency department and inpatient visits through syndromic surveillance from all acute care hospitals in Illinois in near-real time. Data is presented with a three-day lag to allow time for diagnosis to be reported.
At the county level, a visit is counted by where the patient resides. A patient with multiple visits will be counted for each visit. Admissions may not be because of COVID-19 as the primary cause. Syndromic surveillance data is not the same source used by the CDC to report COVID-19 hospital admissions data.
