LANSING, Ill. (August 2, 2020) – The Lansing Journal partners with HiGeorge to gather and present COVID-19 data from a variety of sources each day.
The chart above shows positivity rates for the current day as well as the overall positivity rate since March 16, when data began to be tracked. The fatality rate is the percentage of positive-testing people who died, on the current day and overall.
The formulas used to calculate positivity rates are:
- Today’s rate = (Positive increase in cases for that day) / (test results increase for that day)
- Overall rate = (Total number of cases since 3/16) / (total tests since 3/16)
