Like the state of Illinois, Kane County had a much better weekend in the battle against COVID-19.

Kane County recorded 119 new cases and zero deaths over the weekend. The totals to date are 51,237 positive cases and 723 deaths related to the coronavirus.

66 New Cases; Zero Deaths; Test Positivity Jumps to 5%; County Passes 100,000 Vaccine Doses

Kane County passed a milestone in the vaccination count today but also recorded an alarming increase in the seven-day test positivity rate for the coronavirus.

According to data provided by the Illinois Department of Public Health, there have been 105,116 doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered here.

That total went up by 6,364 from the previous day and represents a single-day record for Kane County vaccinations.

According to the IDPH website, nearly half of Kane County’s 65-and-over population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The percentage was 49.95 as of Friday’s report.

While those numbers are reasons to celebrate, they are sobered by the news that Kane County’s seven-day test positivity rate jumped to 5%. Three days earlier, the seven-day rolling average was at 3.7%. The daily test positivity rate on March 3 — the most recent day on the IDPH chart — was 9.3%.

Kane County recorded zero deaths, but there were 66 new COVID-19 cases. That brings the totals to 51,116 positive cases and 723 deaths as Kane County approaches the one-year anniversary of its first recorded case on March 11, 2020.
