Illinois’ COVID-19 case rate, new hospitalizations decline over weekend

The Illinois Department of Public Health announced 9,878 new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 and 12 additional deaths for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday combined. IDPH does not update its data dashboard on weekends or holidays.

As of late Monday, Illinois had 1,234 COVID-19 patients in the hospital. Of those, 125 were in intensive care units, and 38 were on ventilators.

For Friday-Monday, the state administered 4,810 vaccines.

From the IDPH’s data dashboard:

Case rate per 100,000: 26.2 (down 3.1 from Friday)

Percentage of ICU beds available: 25%

COVID-19-diagnosed hospital admissions (seven-day rolling average): 113 (down 7 from Friday)

Weekly deaths reported: 70

Illinois has seen 3,706,263 total cases of the virus, and 34,759 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.

Vaccine update: As of Friday, the IDPH reported a total of 29,318,275 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been distributed statewide, with 23,253,568 vaccines administered.

As of Friday, 8,350,508 Illinoisans have been fully vaccinated, or 65.54% of the population. Illinois has a population of 12,741,080 people.
