None of Kankakee’s 57 COVID-19 deaths have been from accident, suicide or homicide, the Kankakee Coroner said Sunday.

The Kankakee County Coroner’s office updated deaths in the County due to COVID-19 early this afternoon. “No Covid-19 deaths have been determined to be from an accident, suicide, or homicide.” The Coroner said Sunday afternoon.

Of total deaths in the County to date, 57 of 710 deaths have been from COVID-19. “A death is considered Covid-19 related when the primary care physician or coroner includes Covid-19 as the cause of death or a contributing condition to the death on the death certificate. To date, physicians have signed 53 death certificates and the coroner has signed four. In Kankakee County, all Covid-19 deaths have been considered a natural death.” The Coroner said in a statement.

Of deaths to date, the average age has been 81 years old, occurring in long term care facilities.  Three of the deaths occurring have lived outside of Kankakee County, but died in Kankakee.

“By law these are considered a Kankakee County death.” The Coroner reports.
