Afternoon Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update – 4,596 Confirmed Cases, 65 Deaths; University of Washington’s Projections; Updated CICI Member Services 

This afternoon, the Illinois Dept. of Public Health (IDPH) is now reporting 65 deaths out of 4,596 now-confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Illinois, an increase of 1,105 new cases since yesterday. In total, 27,462 people have been tested for the virus, an increase of 2,033 new tests since yesterday. 

The state acknowledged that it’s currently running about 4,000 tests per day. However, experts believe the number of tests will need to be 10,000 a day by next week in order to develop a more precise mathematical model to evaluate how well current control efforts are working.       

You can see where these cases are occurring at the State of Illinois COVID-19 website which also contains more information on this outbreak. In addition, Western Illinois University has an put together this Map of COVID-19 Cases in Illinois & Surrounding States to give you a better picture of where COVID-19 cases are at in relation to areas surrounding Illinois.  

COVID-19 Predictions: Researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) have launched a website making predictions on the life expectancy of the COVID-19 outbreak in various states and the need for hospital beds and supplies. These researchers are predicting the number of cases and deaths in Illinois will continue to rise until the mid/later part of April under these IHME Projections
