KANE COUNTY – Illinois public health officials on Monday reported 54 new cases of COVID-19 in Kane County and no new deaths.
That is an increase from the 47 new cases reported on Sunday. The total number of cases in the county is now 12,135. The number of COVID-19 deaths in Kane County remains at 323.
The West Suburban region (DuPage and Kane counties) has seen four days of positivity increases and three days of hospital admission increases. The region's positivity rate decreased to 5.8%. 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 1,373 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and five additional deaths Monday.
The seven-day rolling average of Illinois’ positivity rate dropped from 3.7% to 3.6%. The state received the results of 35,930 COVID-19 tests in the 24 hours leading up to Monday afternoon.
Illinois now has seen 262,744 total cases of the virus and 8,314 people have died.
