#COVID19 Update

I didn't share yesterday's numbers I will do so today from CapFax with a press release from the IL Dept. of Public Health

937 new cases of infections with 26 additional deaths. With 17 deaths in Cook County reported yesterday.

Yesterday Ford & Ogle counties are reportings cases now 54 of Illinois' 102 counties.

Also yesterday in his daily coronavirus press conference Gov. Pritzker has extended the stay-at-home order through the end of April. It was originally set to expire April 7, 2020, hopefully we'll have better news by the end of the month. [VIDEO]

Meanwhile here are today's numbers:

Ezike reported 986 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, including 42 deaths. The state now has a total of 6,890 confirmed cases of the virus, and 141 deaths in 56 counties.

“Of course, we all understand that these deaths represent people’s mothers and fathers, and grandmothers and grandfathers, and children, and coworkers, and neighbors, and teachers. These are poele that are no longer with us, and we extend our heartfelt sympathy to the families that they represent,” Ezike said.

Ezike reminded people to stay at home, noting that social distancing is one of the best strategies available to slow the spread of the virus.

“The courageous actions that we need to take are well within our grasp, and those actions are the ones we’ve been saying from the outset: wash your hands, stay at home, clean frequently touched surfaces. All of these things seem minimal, but these are the courageous actions that are going to save lives and eventually end this pandemic,” she said.
986 reported cases with 42 deaths recorded on Wednesday and the total since the state began keeping track 6,890 cases with 141 deaths. Further info from the IL Dept of Public Health Massac & Vermillion counties are now reporting cases 56 Illinois counties now.
