Covid-19 statistics for Illinois
Illinois announced 1,467 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 today. The state also reported 14 additional deaths. Illinois now has 181,943 total known infections and 7,517 fatalities.
The new figures come two days after Illinois officials said 11 counties have been put on a state “warning level” based on key metrics for measuring the resurgence of Covid-19. The state classifies a county as reaching a “warning level” when it sees an increase in at least two risk indicators under the state’s coronavirus resurgence mitigation plan.
