Covid-19 statistics for Illinois
Illinois announced 1,562 new known cases of COVID-19 and 18 additional confirmed deaths.
The state has now logged 206,081 cases overall, and has reported 7,744 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
Additionally, 14 of Illinois’ 102 counties were deemed at “warning level” for a resurgence of COVID-19 on Friday, with the state blaming the virus’s spread in part on poor messaging from local elected officials in “communities where there is little public concern for consequences or enforcement” of social distancing and isolation orders.
