LANSING, Ill. (July 7, 2020) – The Lansing Journal gathers COVID-19 data from a variety of sources each day and chooses a few of those numbers to include in our daily update. Sources include the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Cook County Department of Public Health, and the Indiana State Department of Health.

Lansing numbers (no change)

  • Cumulative cases since 3/16/20: 433 (yesterday: 433)

Illinois numbers

Again, the information in the bullet points is also presented in the charts below, so we may choose to eliminate the bullet points—but we welcome your input in the comments.

  • New cases: 587 (yesterday: 614)
  • New deaths: 37 (yesterday: 6)
  • Total cases: 148,452
  • Total deaths: 7,063
  • Recovery rate: 94%

Indiana numbers

Statewide Indiana numbers are listed below, along with Lake County numbers:

  • New cases statewide today: 314 (yesterday: 330)
  • New deaths statewide today: 19 (yesterday: 5)
  • Total cases statewide: 48,626
  • Total deaths statewide: 2,524

Lake County numbers

  • New cases in Lake County today: 32 (yesterday: 34)
  • New deaths in Lake County today: 0 (yesterday: 0)
  • Total cases in Lake County: 5,212
  • Total deaths in Lake County: 244

Note: Because of the way Indiana reports their numbers, it’s not entirely clear whether the Lake County numbers and the statewide numbers reflect the same 24-hour period. A daily press release from the Indiana State Department of Health includes “today’s” numbers, while the website, which provides numbers by county, explains, “Below results are as of [date], 11:59 PM. Dashboard updated daily at 12:00 PM. New positive cases, deaths and tests have occurred over a range of dates but were reported to ISDH in the last 24 hours.”
