CHICAGO – While the single-day number of COVID-19 cases has dropped significantly in the past 24-hours, the number of deaths has risen to more than the total population of south suburban Illinois village.

The Illinois Department of Public Health reported Monday afternoon 4,699 new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19, including 98 additional deaths. 

That number brings death totals in Illinois since the pandemic began to 15,299 dead.  For a point of reference to the outstanding number of those losing their COVID-19 battles, that’s just over the entire population of the Village of Bradley in suburban Kankakee County.

Bradley’s total residential population in 2018 was 15,277 people.

There have now been 905,069 COVID-19 cases in Illinois throughout the course of the pandemic.  Since testing began, state labs have processed over 12.52 million COVID-19 tests.  As of last night, 4,460 in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 981 patients were in the ICU and 546 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.
