Following guidance from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, IDPH is now reporting both confirmed and
probable cases and deaths on its website. Reporting probable cases
will help show the potential burden of COVID-19 illness and efficacy
of population-based non-pharmaceutical interventions. See CDC
definition of a probable case on its website. IDPH will update these
data once a week.
*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. For health questions about
COVID-19, call the hotline at 1-800-889-3931 or email email@example.com.
News releases will be posted on the DPH.illinois.gov website over
the holiday weekend.
