LANSING, Ill. (November 6, 2022) – On Friday the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) reported a total of 3,823,905 cases, including 35,289 deaths, in 102 counties in Illinois since the beginning of the pandemic.
As of Thursday night, 1,081 individuals in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 136 patients were in the ICU and 48 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.
Of Illinois’ total population, more than 78% have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, more than 70% have completed their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines, and of the eligible population, more than 11% have received the bivalent booster dose, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Data indicates that the risk of hospitalization and severe outcomes from COVID-19 is much higher for unvaccinated people than for those who are up to date on their vaccinations.
