The Illinois Department of Public Health today reported 2,433 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 18 additional deaths.
- Cook County: 1 male 20s, 1 male 40s, 1 female 50s, 1 male 50s, 1 female 60s, 2 males 60s, 3 females 70s, 2 males 70s, 1 female 80s, 1 female 90s, 2 males 90s

IDPH is reporting a total of 1,282,205 cases, including 21,523 deaths, in 102 counties in Illinois.
As of last night, 1,998 individuals in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 418 patients were in the ICU and 177 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.
The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from April 5-11 is 4.4%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from April 5-11 is 4.9%.
The seven-day test positivity rate for Region 8 (Kane and DuPage counties) remains at 7.3%. It’s good news that it didn’t go up, because the threshold for additional mitigations is 8.0%.
Vaccine Administration And Allocation
The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses for Illinois is 9,001,105. A total of 7,243,383 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 132,188 doses.
Yesterday, 64,772 doses were reported administered in Illinois. The Illinois National Guard has administered more than one million doses of COVID-19 vaccines at state-supported vaccination sites around the state.
The total vaccine allocation for the week that begins today (Monday, April 12, 2021) is 551,590. Last week’s allocation was 624,180 doses.
That might be because shipments of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine are expected to be down by 80 percent nationwide due to manufacturing issues, according to media reports.
