LANSING, Ill. (May 7, 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: 3,397 (Previous reported total: 3,384)
  • Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 20 (Previous day’s total: 20)
  • Seven-day positivity rate: 5.15% (reported May 4, 2021)


The graphs below are created by HiGeorge and are “live,” so they are continually updated as new data are released from official sources.

Illinois vaccinations

A total of 9,719,958 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 65,750 doses. Yesterday, 73,526 doses were reported administered in Illinois.

Vaccination data posted on the IDPH website include vaccines administered in Illinois and are pulled from the Illinois Comprehensive Automated Immunization Registry Exchange (I-CARE). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website includes both federal and state vaccination efforts and represents not only vaccines administered in Illinois, but vaccines administered to Illinois residents while in a different state. As a result, CDC’s percentage for those receiving at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine is higher than the state’s percentage.
