IDPH Tuesday Reported 2,211 New COVID-19 Cases in Illinois

SPRINGFIELD – 2,211 new COVID-19 cases, including 19 additional deaths, were reported Tuesday by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

According to IDPH, one of those deaths was reported in Franklin County. 

Currently, IDPH is reporting a total of 1,343,988 cases, including 22,066 deaths, in Illinois.

The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from April 27-May 3 is 4%.

Thirty-four new COVID-19 cases were reported in our area Tuesday according to information we received and compiled from area health departments.

The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses for Illinois is 11,970,775. A total of 9,450,418 vaccines have been administered so far in Illinois. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 72,613 doses. On Monday, 40,361 doses were reported administered in Illinois. 

Data from this weekend from several pharmacies (Walgreens, Albertsons, CVS) is not yet available due to a national outage in the pharmacies system so the doses being reported as administered are likely to be low. The missing doses will be reflected in numbers in the next couple of days.
