2,102 New Cases Monday; Infections Growing; 80 Counties Offer Vaccine To 16-And-Older Residents
Kane County isn’t one of them, but the state of Illinois announced today that more than 80 counties have expanded COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to all Illinois residents 16 years and older. Scroll down for details.
Meanwhile, the rate of infection continues to go up dramatically, especially in our region, without a lot of notice.
Illinois Department of Public Health today reported 2,102 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease in Illinois, including 11 additional deaths.
The deaths by county, gender and age are as follows:
- Cook County: 2 females 70s, 2 males 70s, 3 males 80s
- DuPage County: 1 male50s, 1 female 60s
- Lake County: 1 female 70s, 1 female 80s
IDPH is reporting a total of 1,258,736 cases, including 21,384 deaths, in 102 counties in Illinois.
Within the past 24 hours, laboratories have reported 59,586 specimens for a total of 20,686,198. As of last night, 1,581 individuals in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 358 patients were in the ICU and 159 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.
The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from March 29-April 4, 2021 is 3.8%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from March 29-April 4, 2021 is 4.5%.
The seven-day test positivity rate for Kane-DuPage Region 8 is 6.5% — higher than it has been in months.
Vaccine Administration And Allocation
The state of Illinois continues to vaccinate residents at a clip of more than 100,000 doses a day, but the allocations this week aren’t much higher for local health departments than in previous weeks.
A total of 7,335,385 doses of vaccine have been delivered to providers in Illinois, including Chicago. In addition, approximately 448,830 doses total have been allocated to the federal government’s Pharmacy Partnership Program for long-term care facilities. This brings the total Illinois doses to 7,784,215.
A total of 6,318,070 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight, including 368,300 for long-term care facilities.
The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 105,779 doses. Yesterday, 27,248 doses were reported administered in Illinois. However, reporting by some providers may be delayed for Sunday.
More than 80 counties have now expanded COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to all Illinois residents 16 years and older, per an IDPH survey of local health departments.
IDPH authorized all local health departments seeing early signs of unfilled appointments to begin vaccinating all residents 16 and older at their immediate discretion, in order to use their vaccine as quickly as possible and mitigate a rise in new COVID-19 cases.
A list of counties that have already expanded COVID-19 vaccine eligibility does not include Kane County or DuPage County.
All Illinois residents will be eligible to receive the vaccine beginning next Monday, April 12, 2021. On that date, all state-supported mass vaccination sites, local health departments, pharmacy partners — in short, every jurisdiction that receives vaccine from the State of Illinois’ allocation — will be instructed to fully open eligibility.
