information gathered from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Cook County Department of Public Health
LANSING, Ill. (October 15, 2020) – This post includes data for the Village of Lansing and data visuals for the state of Illinois.
The Cook County Department of Public Health updates their numbers Monday through Friday. The most recent reports indicate:
- Cumulative total of COVID-19 cases: 952 (Previous day’s total: 942)
- Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 12 (Previous day’s total: 12)
The graphs below are created by HiGeorge and are “live,” so they are continually updated as new data is released from official sources. For that reason, the numbers within a graph might not match the number in the text of this post, depending on when the post is being viewed.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 4,014 new confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 53 additional confirmed deaths.
Starting tomorrow, IDPH will begin including both molecular and antigen tests in the number of statewide total tests performed in Illinois. Previously, due to the limited number of antigen tests and limited information about antigen test accuracy, antigen tests were not included in the total number (which comprised less than 1% of total tests performed). Antigen tests, like BinaxNOW™, are now becoming more readily available, therefore IDPH will include both molecular and antigen tests in its total number of tests starting October 15, 2020.
