And as always we'll keep you updated on any announcements with regards to this virus.

City of Chicago Coronavirus Response Center.

BTW, as of March 22, 2020 there have been 490 coronavirus cases in the city of Chicago while there are 1,049 cases throughout the state of Illinois. You see that information on the above link from the city.

Cook County Resources and Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Also there's from the county Dept. of Public Health on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

According the county Dept. of Public Health as of March 21, 2020 there are 548 coronavirus cases throughout the county which also includes the city of Chicago.

From the State of Illinois Dept. of Public Health Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Very comprehensive and encourage you all to check out the information on here. They note the number of cases throughout the state which as stated above under city of Chicago is 1,049 coronavirus cases. There have been nine deaths statewide and 8,374 have been tested for this virus so far. These stats were updated as of March 22, 2020.

I also want to note that the Gov. J.B. Pritzker has been consistently holding press conferences to announce any updates especially any increase in coronavirus cases and deaths from those cases. Medial professionals primarily from the state Dept. of Public Health are often on hand to talk about the state's response to these cases. Usually they will be covered by our local news stations CBS 2, NBC 5, ABC 7, WGN, FOX 32 or even WTTW. You can also check out the Illinois Channel fb page for any press conference from the Governor.

Finally from the US Government from the Centers for Disease Control on Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

And again as far as the US Government response President Donald Trump has also been holding frequent press conferences with regards to the federal response to this virus.

The most recent update nationally as far as coronavirus cases as of March 20, 2020 is 15,219 reported coronavirus cases with 201 total deaths. All 50 states and 4 US territories such as Guam, Puerto Rico, Washington, DC, and the Virgin Islands are reporting cases so far.

THE CDC cases page is only updated starting at 12:00 Noon Monday through Friday.

Of course if you know of any resources we should be following to enable you all to continuing taking care of yourselves or even if you know of somewhere to be tested. We need your help with that. Please share with us any resources that you think the public should know about.

And as always be careful out there.
