LANSING, Ill. (March 24, 2021) – This post includes data for the village of Lansing and data visuals for the states of Illinois and Indiana.
The South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association has created a COVID dashboard aggregating data from villages throughout the south suburbs. Highlights from Lansing are listed below:
- Cumulative total of COVID-19 cases: 3,089 (Previous reported total: 3,080)
- Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 18 (Previous day’s total: 18)
- Seven-day positivity rate: 5.02% (reported March 21)
The graphs below are created by HiGeorge and are “live,” so they are continually updated as new data are released from official sources.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 2,793 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 20 additional deaths.
Case positivity and test positivity rate are both relevant and offer insight into the bigger COVID-19 picture. Case positivity helps us understand whether changes in the number of confirmed cases is due to more testing or due to more infections. Test positivity accounts for repeated testing and helps us understand how the virus is spreading in the population over time.
The preliminary seven-day statewide positivity for cases as a percent of total test from March 17-23, 2021, is 2.8%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from March 17-23, 2021, is 3.1%.
A total of 5,853,915 vaccine doses have been delivered to providers in Illinois, including Chicago. In addition, approximately 414,900 doses total have been allocated to the federal government’s Pharmacy Partnership Program for long-term care facilities. This brings the total Illinois doses to 6,268,815. A total of 5,036,364 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight, including 363,711 for long-term care facilities.
The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 97,680 doses. Yesterday, 107,219 doses were reported administered in Illinois.
Vaccine data has been adjusted to address the previously reported data discrepancy, and now includes doses administered on previous days that were initially excluded from the system. They were not uploaded because the records included only partial information about recipients. In order to more accurately reflect the total number of doses actually administered, changes to software coding were made to allow the system to accept reports with only partial information. This accounts for roughly 100,000 doses. IDPH has reached out to our pharmacy partners to remind them of the importance of entering information in all fields when vaccine is administered.
