LANSING, Ill. (May 28, 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: 3,475 (Previous reported total: 3,476)*
  • Cumulative total of COVID-19 deaths: 20 (Previous day’s total: 20)
  • Seven-day positivity rate: 3.44% (reported May 25, 2021)

*Reporter’s note: I do not have an explanation for why today’s reported total is lower than yesterday’s. These numbers are gathered from the SSMMA COVID dashboard, and they have been somewhat confusing for the past two days.


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 982 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 21 additional deaths. In addition, more than 66% of Illinois adults have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose and more than 49% of Illinois adults are fully vaccinated, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A total of 11,175,656 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight. The seven-day rolling average of vaccines administered daily is 58,378 doses. Yesterday, 62,274 doses were reported administered in Illinois.
