96 New Cases, No Deaths; Vaccination Totals 61,212

Kane County’s vaccination totals reached 61,212 today, according to data posted on the Illinois Department of Public Health website.

Kane County’s seven-day rolling average of vaccine doses administered remains at around 2,500, despite a drop in vaccine supply the IDPH said today is caused by delivery issues from the federal government due to the winter weather.

Meanwhile, the number of new cases and deaths continued to remain low.

The county tallied 96 new COVID-19 cases and no deaths, according to the IDPH. Since the pandemic began, Kane County has recorded 49,822 cases and 700 deaths related to the coronavirus.

The county’s seven-day rolling rate for test positivity also dropped to 4.5%. The only item of concern was a daily positivity rate increase for the most-recent three days, which means the rolling average is likely to go up.

According to the IDPH, all data are provisional and will change. In order to rapidly report COVID-19 information to the public, data are being reported in real-time. Information is constantly being entered into an electronic system and the number of cases and deaths can change as additional information is gathered.
