Covid-19 statistics for Illinois
Today the state announced 1,393 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 18 additional confirmed deaths. That brings the state’s total to 175,124 cases, including 7,462 deaths, in 102 counties.
The new numbers come as Gov. J.B. Pritzker warned on Wednesday that Illinois could be headed for a “reversal” in its reopening as the state continues to see a resurgence in coronavirus case numbers, and he called on residents to “defend our progress.”
