KANE COUNTY – Illinois public health officials on Sunday reported 47 new cases of COVID-19 in Kane County and one new death, a man in his 60s.

That is a drop from the 69 new cases reported on Saturday. The total number of cases in the county is now 12,081. The number of COVID-19 deaths in Kane County increased to 323.

The West Suburban region (DuPage and Kane counties) has seen four days of positivity increases and two days of hospital admission increases. The region's positivity rate increased from 5.6% to 6.1%. Currently, 31% of medical/surgical beds are available and 48% of ICU beds.

The positivity rate is the percentage of people who test positive out of all the people tested in a given time period. The Illinois Department of Public Health will monitor if these indicators show an increase in COVID-19 disease burden with a simultaneous decrease in hospital capacity or if there are three consecutive days greater than or equal to 8% test positivity rate (7 day rolling).

These indicators can be used to determine whether additional community mitigation interventions are needed for a region to control the further spread of COVID-19.

The Illinois Department of Public Health reported 1,462 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 14 additional deaths Sunday.

The seven-day rolling average of Illinois’ positivity rate remained flat at 3.7%. The state received the results of 46,890 COVID-19 tests in the 24 hours leading up to Sunday afternoon.

Illinois now has seen 261,371 total cases of the virus and 8,309 people have died. The state has conducted a total of 4,735,866 tests since the start of the pandemic.
