LANSING, Ill. (March 31, 2021) – This post includes data for the village of Lansing and data visuals for the states of Illinois and Indiana.
While 70% of Illinois residents 65 years and older have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, not all of the metrics needed to advance to the Bridge Phase and on to Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan have been met. 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. The number of cases of COVID-19 has seen an increasing trend as well. Health officials continue to urge all residents to continue 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: 3,120 (Previous reported total: 3,117)
- Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 19 (Previous day’s total: 18)
- Seven-day positivity rate: 3.58% (reported March 28)
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 2,592 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 28 additional deaths.
