LANSING, Ill. (March 30, 2021) – This post includes data for the village of Lansing and data visuals for the states of Illinois and Indiana.
The number of people being admitted to the hospital in Illinois due to COVID-19 continues to increase. As long as new hospital admissions continue to increase, the state will not advance to the Bridge Phase and on to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan. The number of cases of COVID-19 has seen an increasing trend as well. Health officials continue to urge all residents to mask up, socially distance, and avoid crowds to reduce transmission and bring the metrics back in line to transition to the Bridge Phase.
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: 3,117 (Previous reported total: 3,112)
- Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 18 (Previous day’s total: 18)
- Seven-day positivity rate: 4.16% (reported March 27)
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 2,404 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 17 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 23-29, 2021, is 3.4%. The preliminary seven-day statewide test positivity from March 23-29, 2021, is 3.9%.
