Saturday #COVID-19 update

465 new cases of infections announced today and 13 more deaths. Said to be the most since the state has been keeping track of coronavirus cases as of Jan. 21, 2020. Of those deaths announced today one of them is of an infant younger than 1 years of age. Awful.

Also noted 85% of coronavirus deaths are of individuals over the age of 60. Carrol, Fayette, and Macon counties are now reporting coronavirus cases and that makes 43 of Illinois's 102 counties.
The tally so far in Illinois is 3,491 cases with 47 deaths. And again I contrast the today's number infections (465) with Thursday's (673) & Friday's (488) numbers. I hope the number of deaths peaks at 13, and I hope the peak of infections will be the numbers from Thursday.

While I've shared a link to Rich Miller's blog as he continues to keep an eye on news regarding the coronavirus and it's effect on this state. We can look to the Illinois Channel and today's press conference with Gov. Pritzker - about 30 minutes - as he announced the death of the infant and a state employee with the Dept. of Human Services as among the 13 deaths from coronavirus. [VIDEO]
As always be careful out there!
